The return of showers to San Francisco will coincide with the finale of the National League Championship Series later today.

The San Francisco Giants forced today's Game 7 of the NLCS by beating the St. Louis Cardinals Sunday evening.

While dry weather prevailed through Sunday's Game 6, those in attendance at AT&T Park will need to bring along their rain gear later today as showers swing back into San Francisco.

The showers later today will not be as heavy nor as steady as the rain that wet San Francisco this morning, but will still lightly dampen the field and seats.

The weather will further disappoint fans and players as winds from the west-southwest blow at 10-20 mph. The strongest winds could impact the movement of fly balls.

It will also be cool as the Giants and Cardinals fight to play in the World Series. Temperatures will be around 60 degrees for the game's first pitch, then will fall through the 50s until the last out.

If Game 7 was being played when the weather in San Francisco was more typical of late-October, the first pitch temperature would be around 70 degrees.
