I just drove through a massive thunderstorm today and when I got home, I noticed a little bit of moisture buildup on the inside of the fog lamp lenses towards the corners nearest to the radiator. Anybody else have this before?

Yup, completely normal and it happens every time I wash my car, too. I don't think they're designed to be air tight. The moisture that builds up inside of my lenses goes away a few hours after I'm done washing my car.

From page 513 of the owner's manual (2013 sedan):

NOTICE
Halogen bulbs get very hot when lit.
Oil, perspiration, or a scratch on the glass can cause
the bulb to overheat and shatter.
The headlight aim is set by the factory, and does not
need to be adjusted. However, if you regularly carry
heavy items in the trunk or tow a trailer, have the
aiming readjusted at a dealer or by a qualified
technician.

When replacing a halogen bulb, handle it by its base,
and protect the glass from contact with your skin or
hard objects. If you touch the glass, clean it with
denatured alcohol and a clean cloth.

The exterior lights' inside lenses (headlights, brake
lamps, etc.) may fog temporarily after a car wash or
while driving in the rain. This does not impact the
exterior light function.

However, if you see a large amount of water or ice
accumulated inside the lenses, have your vehicle
inspected by a dealer.
