Simultaneous client and server debugging?

I've been writing a not of node apps lately. I find that I need to be able to simultaneously debug both the server-side node app as well as the client-side stuff, both of which I keep inside the same project for the sake of convenience. I typically fire up the webstorm debugger for the node code and have Chrome's JS console open for the client side. This is a little cumbersome. It would be nice if I could debug both right inside WebStorm. I don't see in the docs that this is supported.

Although I haven't tried it, the only thing I can think of would be to split the client and server code into two separate projects and have both open and debugging at the same time. I'm going to give that a shot, but I wonder if there isn't somehow an easier way that I've missed.
