its likely not from the roof the roof lining has an airspace theres a reason for this when the roof gets very cold most of the moisture from the car rises up above the panel the inside of the roof will freeze even the fact the inside is warmer than the outside can cause enough moisture when the weather warms slightly or the interior it melts you may see or feel it as moisture if you look at the design with the roof panel and rear interior trim removed there are channels which run to the rear of the car and vents next to the rear bumper thats what they are for allowing moisture out ,unless you have a sunroof i doubt its youre roof.

its most likely to be a front bulkhead leak on the passenger side to get that much water from the roof it would have to have a hole in quite frankly or the car is facing forward on a slope and its coming from the rear ie burst rear washer hose
