When it rains hard we often get water to come in through our double front doors where the door we open meets the striker. I'm hoping I don't have to reframe the front door or anything of the such. Would I need to do anything with the astragal?

When I push on the door near the striker it makes a tighter seal which I am thinking would resolve the water issue since you then barely see light coming through and when there are high winds like today it even pushes the door back a bit further.

Photos are attached. In picture 8, the bolt wasn't sitting in the top part of the frame so I have since adjusted it but the door still does not seal the way it should. What are the options here?

I don't know why the photos aren't showing vertical as expected after I rotated them properly on the computer.
