water leaking through basement egress window

I just finished the drywall portion of my basement (mudding, taping, and texturing), and after all the rain the past few days, I've got a puddle forming in my egress window that is above the window level. That water is now leaking in onto the sill and down my drywall. Any suggestions on how to stop this, as it is supposed to continue raining through the weekend? Also, what can I do so this doesn't happen again? Should I dig the egress deeper or put some sort of drainage system in there? Thanks for your help!
