Unhappy Can rain wash off the primer from a wall?

I prepared an external surface for painting and then applied a coat of primer.
Unfortunately the project is now in a halt because its raining for the last 2 weeks.
Do you think that all that rain could possibly wash off the primer from the walls?
Many thanks

If the primer was dry before it got wet - you should be fine. Primer isn't formulated for wear but it should be fine for weeks, now months might be another matter

How's it look?

If it looks like the primer is still there, you should be fine
