Default New door on workshop

We recently built a new workshop at my parents house. The problem we are having though, is that the french style doors are letting water in. This is happening between the door and the weatherstripping, what can I do to fix this. I have looked and found a rain deflector that could be used, but I was hoping someone had a better suggestion.

thanks,
Mike

Are these EXTERIOR doors? If they are, they should be waterproof and I would contact the manufacturer to see if they can help. The first thing they will ask is "Were they installed properly?(per instructions)".

They are exterior doors, but it is not sealing on the bottom and the weather stripping. The doors shut great and lock but they are not sealing at the bottom.

Is water coming under a metal threshold or between the actual doors and the floor?
