That proved to be true by about 9:30 a.m., as the Wilmington Police Department tweeted that Whipple Road is beginning to flood at the town line of Wilmington, Tewksbury, and Billerica.
In addition, Wilmington Police also said via Twitter that Phillips Ave. is closed from Grove Ave. to Baker Street due to flooding.
"Please use extreme caution if traveling through standing or moving water," Wilmington Police said. "Do not drive around barricades. If a road is barricaded, it has been determined that it is no longer safe for vehicular & pedestrian traffic."
