Could be your sunroof drains that are clogged. Should check those first as it's the easiest to figure out.

Could also be your vapor barrier on your doors. See this thread as it may help you fix this problem.

my front well got wet from plastic rain guides that coud not lead all the water out and some (obviously serious amount of water) was dipping over the brake servo unit and eventually found its way to the front well, that happened during the night of a hard rain while the car was leaned toward the drivers half, this is a design flaw, in other words not a single drop should dip over the brake servo unit, try with garden hose and a lot of water over the windshield to check out, use some butyl to fix the connecting plastics, one from the ac filter cover and the side plastic stretching to the hood side

rear driver end was due to the loose vapor barrier, once repaired, do not place the panel back until checked with the hose and plenty of water

good luck,

have some photos of the suspects , let me know if needed
