Our Volvo 940 Estate has leaked after heavy rain, where could the leak be?

After heavy rain we have water in the footwells of both passenger and driver sides. Any idea where this may be coming in?

Heavy rain can expose any potential flaws in the door and window seals, and based on where the water has collected it would suggest that it is either the windscreen that is leaking, or potentially the window or door seals in the front doors. You can attempt to replicate the effect yourself by using a hose or watering can poured over these areas while someone sits inside and checks for water ingress.
