Leak in corner of sky light


It's been raining here for about 3 days now and it's expected to rain through the weekend. This morning, my wife and noticed a leak in the upstairs bathroom in the corner of the skylight. My first guess is the flashing around the skylight? We actually just moved in and I have not even been on the roof, but it passed inspection just fine. The leak is in the corner of the frame at the ceiling level, not all the way up by the skylight, see pic below.Name:  photo-1.jpg

You have to look at the roof. That's where the problem is. Don't be fooled by what you see inside.

Looks like a really old single pane glass light.
It could also be condensation forming on the glass and running down with that old style window.

If you take a few pix from the topside, we'd be in a better position to determine where the water might be coming in. Meaning you need to go up on the roof.
