During heavy rains with wind, there will be water on the blinds, casement and drapes, on the inside. There are no water streaks on the outside. This is on the first story and there is a bedroom above. Our question is, where should we be looking for the problem....on the roof line or the porch above? On the roof at the top? Is the water then running down the wall and into the window frame? Any suggestions would be helpful and I can give more details if needed. Thank you!!!

All of the above, the easiest way to troubleshoot a leak like that is get out there with a hose or pressure washer and start low and work your way up the wall and onto the roof.
You’ll find the leak or leaks.
Post a picture if you can standing back from the outside.
