Roof vents letting snow mist in!

The other day we had a snow storm. It was blowing and snowing. I come upstairs to a room I have gutted and notice a wet spot on the floor. After investigating I noticed a fine mist coming in from the roof vent. Is this normal or is there a easy fix for this. Thanks

Lets see a picture. Probably a cheap aluminum ridge vent. Needs to get a properly baffled ridge vent.
