Leaking Bathroom Skylight

We just bought a house with a bathroom skylight about 4 months ago. We have not experienced any leaks at all with it in that time. Today it started leaking. The leak appears to be in the lower corner of the skylight. It just sort of trickles down the inside of the skylight shaft. I'm not home but my wife went up to the attic and sees no moisture around the outside shaft or insulation. What could cause this (I'm not too familiar with skylights)?

It has been cold here (25 degrees) for the past couple of days and it snowed about an inch last night. It rained like crazy about a week ago and it didn't leak a drop!

Thanks

That is what someone else said.

I guess it is possible.........I just wonder why it has never happened before.

Thanks
