Any way to keep rain off my screen porch (a little)?

We have a screen porch on the south side of our house. It has 2.5 foot knee-walls and the screen panels that extend to the ceiling. The problem is that we (obviously) get lots of rain on the porch with the right combination of wind and rain. I do try to dry it off, but we are already getting some floor damage due to standing water. I would like to find a way to keep the water out, and am envisioning some sort of pull-down shade that would clip at the bottom. I've seen this type of shade to keep the sun out - has anyone come across something that would work the same way for rain? Or does anyone have any other ideas to keep the screen porch puddle-free?

Thanks!
