There are three usual things that cause this:
1) The heater box drain is clogged, missing or disconnected (A/C condensation.)
2) The drain holes in the bottom of the door(s) are clogged with filth, rust and debris.
3) The sunroof/moonroof drains are clogged and/or disconnected.

Beyond that I can think of any cowl drain that may be clogged allowing water to back up into the interior.

If you have a moon roof it is most likely the drain line is clogged. There is one on each side that runs down thru the windshield post. If you have a compressor you can blow them out with about 100 psi from the top.

If you have had a front screen replaced i have had a leak from this and had to have it re installed as it was not sealed well enough
