    Moisture on a hot surface will cause steam.

    Its when it comes from inside the bonnet you need to worry!!

    Out of curiosity have you washed the car before you've noticed this problem? Were you driving the car when it happend and stopped/parked up in traffic or lights etc?

    Mine does this only from the front of the car when i've washed it or it rains hard. Steam from radiator i think.

    Yours could be a blocked drainage hole on the windscreen plastic panel, running onto engine exhaust etc??
