Here's why it smells in the Twin Cities this morning

The explanation is pretty simple: The stench can happen in the fall as farmers spray their fields with fertilizer (essentially liquid manure in most cases) before the ground freezes. Wind speed and direction play a role in who smells it, so one moment you may notice a stench in the air and an hour later it may be gone, FOX 9 Meteorologist Cody Matz explains, admitting he's not a farm expert.
