A FLASH FLOOD WATCH has been issued for heavy rain through Friday night which may lead to risky conditions due to flooding of creeks and poor drainage areas.

An area of low pressure laden with tropical moisture from the Gulf of Mexico will bring periods of heavy rain and some thunderstorms to the region, the weather service said.

An additional 1 to 3 inches of rainfall is expected through this evening, according to the National Weather Service in Blacksburg.

"Anywhere from 2-4" of rain fell across parts of the area Thursday.

No Man's Sky Xbox One release set for July, bringing multiplayer
Xbox One X owners will also receive graphical enhancements when the game launches but no details have been given quite yet. No Man's Sky will debut on Xbox One in late July, adding multiplayer to the game, developer Sean Murray today confirmed .

As the end-week flood watch continues, the weather service says most of today should now be dry.

As storms continue to dump rain on areas of the state, travel conditions became hazardous and resulted in a few reported water rescues.

Several days of excessive runoff will also lead to a risk of flooding in larger streams and rivers, though the extent of the flooding will depend on where the heaviest rain falls.
