Sounds like either water condensation from storage or left over from the last washing was in the fins. I usually run my engine after washing so the heat can get any moisture out of areas I don't want it to be. This is very important with aluminum because many of the minerals and chemicals in tap water can cause corrosion. That's why you should never top off a radiator with the garden hose.
