The National Weather Service has issued a flash flood warning for Eastern Massachusetts.
The warning said thunderstorms have already dumped 1-2 inches of rain in the western suburbs, and the storms are expected to retain that soaking power as they head toward the coast.
“Rapid and potentially life threatening flooding of streets and underpasses is imminent. Do not drive through flooded roads and find alternate routes,’’ wrote the National Weather Service in their 10:34 p.m. alert.
Some locations that will experience flooding include: Boston, Cambridge, Quincy, Lynn, Newton, Somerville. Framingham, Waltham, Malden, Brookline, Medford, Weymouth. Revere, Arlington, Everett, Salem, Woburn, Braintree. Chelsea, Natick, Randolph, Watertown, Lexington, Needham. Norwood, Wellesley, Milton, Melrose, Stoughton and Saugus.
The warning is set to expire at 12:30 p.m..
