A Flood Watch means there is a potential for flooding based on
current forecasts.

You should monitor later forecasts and be alert for possible
flood warnings. Those living in areas prone to flooding should be
prepared to take action should flooding develop.

... Areas of dense fog through the overnight hours...

Areas of very dense fog are occurring and will continue until a
warm front pushes north of the region this morning. Expect
visibilities of less than one quarter mile at times. Very low
visibilities will make driving hazardous across the north country.
If you must travel, slow down and leave plenty of distance ahead
of you.
