Shed leak

Why does my shed leak in winter but not in summer even during a torrential downpour. The roofing doesn't seem to be punctured, but the wooden ceiling planks are split. It's like the water is between the wooden roof and the felting.

Sounds like icedams to me. Do you live in a climate that receives snow during the winter that does not melt completely before refreezing?

We do get overnight frost, but there was no snow last winter, beyond the odd flurry that didn't settle.

I'm by no means an expert, but what is your flooring material? It could be condensation if you have an open floor. Cold Roof+Warm moist ground=Dewpoint...Just a thought....
