no condensate or sweating suction line?

When an a/c system is running is it always mandatory to have the suction line sweat? It's dry where I'm at but it seems like this week despite our fairly warm daytime highs that I'm not seeing a single drop of condensate from the evap coil or from the suction line on the condensing unit.

a/c blows cold but I don't even recall ever seeing an a/c system not sweat to some degree.

RE: no condensate or sweating suction line?

It depends on the humidity.

If the condensate line falls below the dew point for the relative humidity it is exposed to it sweats.
