Default Water on floor behind drivers seat

Well besides stuff i need to do in the next month, I have discovered that there is alot of water behind the drivers seat on the floor, yet i do not see any leaks around or near the drivers side window.
It has only been raining the last few days and since i bought the car it has only rained 2 other times but not much, tonight after i got off work, i noticed water behind the drivers seat, the carpet is wet near the door area behind the seat yet i didn't see anything dripping from above, this was all while it was sitting all day today while it rained (not driven).
Was wondering if anyone has had this problem at all and maybe what i should look for or look at, it was near dark when i got off work so i cannot look at it for another day or 2 at best.
As far as i know this car has never been in an accident, seems to be really straight, weather stripping around door seems to be fine as far as i can tell.
Will try and look at it better this Saturday or have a body shop take a look at it to see if they can pinpoint the problem, but figured i would ask here as well first.
This vehicle is a 94 sc1 (2 door), It soaked the floor pretty good.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

Is it a sunroof car? If so, sunroof drains can do this. If you pull out the bottom of your back seat it could be full of water as well. Is the headliner wet at all?

does your car have a sunroof? If so the sunroof drain tubing is most likley clogged with some debris.

Yeah thought about that last night, forgot to mention this has no sunroof,
I havent had the chance to really look at it during daylight hours, but it got pretty wet behind the seat yet did not see any type of dripping at all.

For cars through '95, check this by Wolfman, in the How To library

Going to try wolfmans idea out, i bet or hope that will take care of the problem,
Today when i got into the car and it was still raining out, i did see a drip out of the corner of my eye from above, it has been raining almost non stop the last 4 days here in cincinnati ohio, sunday i believe it is supposed to stop, so going to try his idea and hope it fixes it.
Thanks for linking that to me

You're welcome, and be sure to read that thread all the way down to the 'dollar bill' test for the warped door, too
