If you like it cooler when walking around the Minnesota State Fair, you're in luck. 

The forecast shows temperatures will be cooler than normal in Falcon Heights for much of the fair's 12-day run, with highs in the 60s and 70s. 

The average high for this time of year is in the upper 70s. 

But bring your umbrella. There's a good chance fairgoers could see some rain, especially in the first few days of the fair. (The Minnesota Climatology Office says on average it rains about three to four days of the State Fair.)

Here's what to expect for the next week: 

Thursday, Aug. 24: Partly sunny, with a high of 71. But early fairgoers could see some showers in the morning, with the National Weather Service expecting showers to clear out around sunrise. 

Friday, Aug. 25: Mostly cloudy, with a high of 66. All those clouds will keep temps about 10 degrees below normal, the weather service says. There's a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms during the day, and overnight into Saturday. 

Saturday, Aug. 26: Cloudy, with a high of 71. There's a 50 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. 

Sunday, Aug. 27: Mostly cloudy, with a high of 71. There's a 40 percent chance of showers and thunderstorms. 

Monday, Aug. 28: Partly sunny, with a high of 73 – and no rain in the forecast. 

Tuesday, Aug. 29: Mostly sunny, with a high of 77. There will be a "calm wind" of around 5 mph in the afternoon. 

Wednesday, Aug. 30: Mostly sunny, with a high near 76 and a northwest wind of 5 mph.
