I try and refrain from driving the car in the rain but got caught out in a massive thunderstorm this afternoon with torrential rain.

I noticed a problem with the wipers as in when stopped at a red light the wiper blade would hit the recess channel with a loud thump but when in motion even at slow speeds the wiper blade would stop a few inches above the recess channel. Not sure what's going on here; does anybody have any ideas?

If indeed the arm slipped on the spindle, you are well-advised to inspect the splines on each. You may want to sharpen any rounded corners on the splines (both arm and motor) with a small file.
