They are damp because the dew point is above the temperature of the window. That mean you need to get the window warmer or lower the dew point.
Storm windows, thermo pane etc. help get the window warmer. However if you are already getting it, what are you going to do when it really gets cold.
I suggest the humidity is too high (dew point factor) around the windows in questions and maybe the whole home. Do you have an un-vented dryer, or heating device? Are the windows near or in the bath room or kitchen where local humidity may be high.

Yes. Add storm windows. If you are really cheap, not handy, and need a quick solution then add plastic inside like you find at any hardware store. The best solution is adding real storm window on the outside. An intermediate cost is to add frames around the existing windows and build your own storm windows using flexible clear plastic. You will need to replace the plastic every 4-5 years, but finding really clear distorionless plastic is difficult.

I get that every year at this time,then it goes away as the weather turns colder and the air becomes drier. I do put the plastic on some windows upstairs, but it wouldn't be practical to do the whole house, and to replace all the windows would be too expensive.

It wouldn't be too expensive if you plan on living in the house for a long time, especially if you are willing to build the storm windows yourself. They can rather quickly pay for themselves with reduced heating costs in cold areas.
