Post car wash steam?

I have a monthly membership at a Checkers automatic car wash here in town, which allows me unlimited washes per month. I have noticed that when leaving the wash, steam is rising from the front of the car, presumably from the front grille. I have also seen this steam after stopping from driving in a moderate rain. Is this normal?

Yep. With our cars having such an open grille, water is bound to make contact with the hot radiator.
