Different atmospheric conditions or temperatures at different points along the run.

you are supposed to seal conduit where it goes from one temp norm to a different temp norm such as when it comes through a wall. The moisture laden air can travel from the warmer area to the cooler area and the moisture will condense.

Now, I can't remember too many underground conduits that weren't simple full of water (liquid cooled wiring. lower resistance. saves money) but you are supposed to seal the conduits anyway.
