We just move in to a two year old house. We live in a cold climate,
but during a recent warm spell i noticed water deipping along a line
running down the middle of the soffit vents over top of our covered
porch. What could be causing this, do I need to be worried, and if so
what can I do about it?
Yes it can be serious, have you looked in the attic, is it black and
moldy looking, likely warm air is condensing and freezes, when it warm
to near 32 it melts and runs out. It could be a few things but must be
addresed before you rot your roof deck and beams, Was it inspected by an
inspector, if so he should have caught the warning signs.

If it is an ice dam, won't ash be able to see that from looking at the
roof. I've never had one but doesn't it show by melted or melting
snow on most of the roof except near the edges? Whereas normally
snow melts at the edges first and the bare roof show gradually
spreading up the roof?
