nitrogen does not form ice.  you do not specifically state it, but may i assume
you keep a small flow of dry nitrogen during data collection?  otherwise, check
your enclosure for leaks and seal any you find.  it would also probably help to
move away from houston to a drier climate, such as arizona.
