condensation problem, need help.

I have a single pane window. On the interior there is a storm window glass insert. Im getting condensation on the single pane window.. there is none on the interior insert.

Does that mean warm humid house air is infiltrating the insert? And if so, would caulking the seems of the insert stop the condensation?

Wanted an idea of how to correct this before I goop up the insert with silicon.

Storm windows on the outside are vented to help dry out that moisture. A storm on the inside is a problem. If vented, which intentionally or unintentionally, that air is going to be humid inside air. If you seal it, whatever moisture is in there will continue to be a problem.

Look for intentional vents. Not sure what to do. Joe or others may have some advice.
