window leak

I had a similar experience with a bay window (it rotted all the way thru. I will probably have to replace it at some point, but, I cleared out all the rotted wood from the outside (it will be below the window, keep poking, you will find it), and then filling with a 2 part wood filler. After that, get some clear caulk, and go around the outside of the glass(or have the window reglazed). Odds are that the caulk on the outside of the window failed, and when the wind blows, it runs down the glass, and then under the glass (soaking the wood in the process).
