Today will be cloudy and cooler but with higher humidity, rain should move into Clifton area this afternoon but the heaviest rain will occur tonight into most of Wednesday morning, the rain could be quite heavy at times causing flash flooding, rainfall amounts 2-3 inches can be expected with possibly up to 4″  in some places.

Showers will persist into Wednesday afternoon but we may have some clearing before sunset.

Back to drier and seasonable cool air Thursday and Friday.
