Wiper slap

Good afternoon folks. I was wondering if this is a common problem? My drivers side wiper blade slaps the edge of the windscreen (in the vertical position) this only happens in heavy rain when the screen is well lubricated. Any ideas wiper linkage? motor? Still does its job but most annoying.
