Main Question or Discussion Point

What happens if you cool the mixture of water vapor and air to the temperature lower than 273 K? Since saturation pressure is higher than 0 some vapor should stay in the air. In the solid form?

Welcome to PF.

At 280K, water can (and usually does on Earth!) simultanously exist in gaseous and liquid states, in equilibrium. No reason why you can't have a gas/solid equilibrium too.
