As Minneapolis prepares to host the Major League Baseball All-Star Game this week, temperatures will be reminiscent of autumn.

Dry conditions will also be the story for fans headed to the game on Tuesday, with highs staying just near the 70-degree mark around game time before dropping into the mid-60s through the evening.

The game is set to begin shortly after 7 p.m. CDT.

Temperatures will gradually return to near normal during the second half of the week as the pool of cool air responsible for the lower temperatures shifts to the north and east.

Dry conditions will also stick around through the rest of the week with the exception of a spotty shower on Friday.
