Condensation On Ceiling Vent

Two story home with Central Air and Duct Work both under home to lower level and in attic for upper level. Today I noticed a bit of condensation forming on one of two ceiling vents in my Master Bed Room. It has been very wrm and heta index in the +100 range, I have the ability to separately baffle air to the upper and lower vents, and I have tyhe upper level significantly closed (not totally) as the second story will freeze you out if the baffle is left fully opened. Any suggestions here and again it is only ONE vent in the upper level of the home that seems to be affected.

I'd guess you have closed it to much. Open it up at least half way

Condensation on Vent

Exactly what I have done and it seems to be working, thanks for the input,

Reason I had her closed down was the wife thinks it s too cold upstairs and the reason is that when I bought this place 30 years ago I had 10" of additional insulation blown in on top of the Cellulose that was already in place. Best money I ever spent on a home.
