The National League Championship Series is heating up in Los Angeles, and so is the weather.
Monday also marked the beginning of a warming trend in Los Angeles that sent temperatures into the low 80s. Further warming will lead to highs in the middle to upper 80s for Tuesday and Wednesday. Bright sunshine will continue to prevail these days.
This means sunshine for the Dodgers as they fight to get to stay in the playoffs in Game 5 at 4 p.m. on Wednesday. Currently the St. Louis Cardinals have the lead in the series 3-1.
Highs in the upper 70s are more common in Los Angeles this time of year, meaning fans will be dealing with some warmer-than-average heat.
An earlier start time and the presence of an even warmer air mass will make Wednesday's Game 5 the hottest game of the series. The temperature for the game's first pitch is expected to be 87 degrees.
