Itracy: Square Eye & CraigFL are on. My experance is- All the storms I come across up here were I live, have an adjustment plate between the sash and the sill made from Alum. with Two or three set screws and some Weep holes bent right in like a, U in the part that set's to the sill.
A 1930's home, someone came in and sold Storm Windows, these sill plate is proubly painted over if it aint been maintained.
-Just me, I would not have drilled any holes, but would release the set screws and score the paint inside and out with a UT knife and a chesle and free these weep holes.
I want my venting on the the very bottom. Condensation can and will build up and fall to the sill looking for a vent. I have worked alot of old houses and replaced alot of sills. They aint to hard to do as long as ya still have a sill plate left in the rough framing.LOL
Dont let your Windows & Siding go.!!!
Be safe out there folks.
