The flood warning issued for Boston and surrounding areas at 9 a.m. will remain in effect until noon, the National Weather Service in Taunton said.

The moist tropical air mass that is covering Southern New England is stagnant, causing thunderstorms in the region, according to National Weather Service meteorologist Charlie Foley.

The brunt of the storm is currently Southeast of the Massachusetts Turnpike, but it is working its way towards Boston, Foley said. There have already been reports of flooding and road closures in Framingham, he added.

The showers and thunderstorm will remain in the region into Tuesday, making for a wet and humid Labor Day weekend, the Weather Service said.
