Getting Coordinates into Cell Values

Okay, sorry, I've used ArcGIS since the beginning, but rarely Spatial Analyst.
I have what is probably a silly question.

I need to get the Latitude values into the cell values of a grid.

It seems like such an easy idea, but I'm stumped.  I've found older reference to $$YMap, but it looks like that doesn't work in 10.2.

I think I could hack it by making points of the cells, calcing the Y value, then moving it back into a Grid.  Surely there is something more elegant?

Thanks in Advance
