Default Window not sealing

I have a bedroom window that doesn't seem to seal properly. When the wind blows it's like a canyon! It shuts enough to lock, but the frame of the window itself doesn't seat tightly into the frame of the opening. It's a metal framing and windowsill. Any ideas short of replacing the window, which is NOT an option currently?
