Perfect weather in forecast for Coweta Fair
By SARAH FAY CAMPBELL
Perfect fair weather is forecast through next week.
The forecast calls for sunny skies and warm temperatures every day of the Coweta County Fair, with crisp fall nights.
Today's forecast from The Weather Channel is for a high of 85 and a low of 62.
Saturday is the official first day of fall, and though the day will still be summery, the night will be rather cool — the forecast low is 57.
The cooling trend will continue Sunday and Monday, with highs in the upper 70s and lows in the low to mid 50s. Things will warm up again on Tuesday but, throughout the week, there is a zero percent chance of rain. There is a 10 percent chance of rain next Saturday.
The fair opens for Friday night at 5 p.m. and runs through midnight. Hours are noon to midnight on Saturday and 2 p.m. to 10 p.m. on Sunday.
