No condensation from drain on AC unit

Today was the first time i needed to run my Central AC unit.
I noticed that there was no condensation draining.After further checking the drain pan it was bone dry.The coils were sweating but not a drop of water in the pan.The house cooled down with no problem at all though.It was a relatively low humidity day.Could the humidity level be the reason????
I ran the AC for about 2 hours with absolutely no draining.Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Yes, that is the reason. The first thing you a/c does is remove humidity (latent heat) then lowers the temp (sensible heat).

Keep keeping an eye on it, at this point I think no worries.
