Bathroom vent in AZ

Arizona is the most arid, hottest state in the country.

In the winter, it CAN get down to 40 degrees in the morning, but later in the day, it's 70.

With that being said, I know you're not supposed to vent a bathroom vent into an attic due to moisture problems. But it's never over 10% humidity here. I wish it was!

Can / should I vent to the attic - knowing my location and climate. I don't see how doing this would cause problems.

Let's hear it guys!

Bathroom vent in AZ

Never a good idea and would not meet code. It needs to be run out the roof or a wall, not the soffits or ridge vent.
