FALCON HEIGHTS, Minn. (WCCO) – The temperatures are going to flirt with record highs on Monday. Not just for this day in history. It might be the hottest day at the State Fair ever. The current record high for a fair day, according to Mike Lynch, is 104. Mike Augustyniak said we’ll likely be flirting with triple-digit temperatures.
Jamie Yuccas was feeling the heat at the roasted corn stand …
… and cooled down, so to speak, at the “ice” skating booth.
Natalie Nyhus shared her favorite things from the Fair on Monday. First up, she revealed her favorite food to eat at the fair: Luigi’s fries.
And then Natalie talked a bit about her favorite attraction, the Giant Yellow Slide.
Also, in case you missed it Sunday evening, check out some of the best freebies you can find at the Fair.
This year at the Great Minnesota Get-Together, WCCO-TV is once again putting your meteorology skills to the test.
This year’s theme is all about weather and our amazing weather team.
Fairgoers will have a chance to “become” a meteorologist for a day – putting their skills to the test to report the weather as a fair forecaster in front of a large, touch-screen TV, incorporated with special effects.
In addition to testing your meteorology skills, fairgoers will have the opportunity to experiment with the Chroma Key, a special effects green screen used during weather forecasts.
Are you apart of our Weather Watcher Network? Come to the WCCO-TV Fair Forecaster booth to get the latest weather updates and try out the Weather Watcher Network program our meteorologists use on-air.
We’ll also be giving away free “Weather is Our Nature” bags to every guest that visits our WCCO-TV Fair Forecaster booth during the designated bag giveaway times – 10:30 a.m., 3:30 p.m., and 7:30 p.m.
Outside of the WCCO-TV booth, fairgoers will have the opportunity to check out WCCO’s Mobile Weather Watcher, a state-of-the-art weather-tracking machine.
And be sure to get a good seat to watch the LIVE broadcasts – at noon, 4 p.m., 5 p.m., 6 p.m. and 10 p.m.
The WCCO-TV booth is at the corner of Carnes Ave. and Nelson St.
We can’t wait for you to join us at the fair!
