The Great Minnesota Sweat-Together will be anything but that when the State Fair begins Thursday. Instead, the forecast calls for food sweats replacing heat sweats.
"The middle of the week will start out dry with a taste of fall in the air as a cold front moves through the region and brings highs in the 70s, with lows in the 50s for Wednesday and Thursday," says the forecast discussion Monday morning from the National Weather Service in the Twin Cities.
That isn't to say all 12 days of the fair will be weather-friendly. In fact, as soon as Day 1 is in the books, the humidity will begin to return in time for the weekend, and with it comes the chance for showers and storms.
