Question about Measuring Tools & Sensors
As a former roofer I would suspect condensation dripping from a non-insulated roof underside where the actual beams are, if the plywood is actually exposed to your view, this may very well be where your problem lies. If when your roof was installed, it may very well be you had a handyman and not a certified roofer install your roof, which in turn would render you an improperly installed roof, you did not indicate whether this is a flat roof or shingle roof, however a coat a flashing cements by a brand called Karnak or metal flashing may indeed help your situation.

You might be getting what they call freezeback. Ask your roofer if he installed "ice shield". Guaranteed he didn't. Ice shield is a stcky backed (tar) membrane that doesn't allow ice to crawl under your shingles and leak into your house. This happens when your gutter freezes and ice builds. Code is you should have enough ice shield to project into your house at 3ft. So you should have 2 rows or around 6ft of ice shield installed from the end of your roof up and then the rest is tar or felt paper. This is installed almost the same as felt paper. You jus peel the back of it and it sticks all by itself. Probably easier to install than paper. The cost would be about 90 bucks a roll.

It sounds as if the roofer did not install the vapor barrier, (rolled shiney black tar paper, then the rolled black felt paper ) under your shindles.

You must conact your roofer and complain... COMPLAIN.. it sounds like you have a leak and the installers have allowed moistere to get under the roofing materials...!!!
Basically water expands when it freezes (ice cube tray.. over filled ) so if there's any kind of leak the water penetrates.. feezes allowing it to migrate up under the materials and then as the warm air from inside the attic causes the ice to then melt. I'd call and find out what the deal is.. especially if this has been going on SINCE the new roof was installed....
