It's going to be hot this weekend, especially in the southern part of the state.
And that means if you're going to the Wisconsin State Fair, spokesperson Patrice Harris, says you need to be prepared and have a plan.
"Drink plenty of water first and foremost. Keep yourself hydrated."
Temperatures over the weekend are expected to be hot and humid — in the low 90s in the southern half of the state, with a heat index reaching 100. Harris says there are ways fairgoers can take a break from the heat.
"Sit down, rest, wear light-colored clothing, breathable fabric … Remember to wear a hat, bring your sunscreen."
Also, Harris says, there are many air-conditioned buildings throughout the fairgrounds. Be aware of the warning signs of heat exhaustion, including heavy sweating, paleness, muscle cramps, fatigue, weakness, dizziness, headache, nausea, or fainting.
NOTE: There is also a 50% chance of thunderstorms on Saturday and 20-percent on Sunday.
