The alert was issued around 3:30 p.m. and is for 10 counties in Massachusetts, one of which is Middlesex County.
Wilmington is also under a Flood Advisory in preparation for the storm.
"Rapid ponding of water on roadways will cause minor urban flooding through the midafternoon hours," the NWS advisory said. "Streams and creeks may rise out of their banks, causing minor property damage."
The NWS warned drivers not to drive through areas where the water covers the roadway in case the water depth is too great to allow cars to cross safely.
