25 Oct 2017, 2:33 pm

It was a record setter for game one of the World Series in Los Angeles Tuesday. Scorching heat sent the mercury to 104 degrees in Los Angeles, shattered the old record high of 99. The temperatures at Dodger Stadium for the first pitch was 103 degrees, making it the hottest World Series game on record.

It won’t feel much better today for game two. The Los Angeles Dodgers and Houston Astros will once again feel temperatures at or slightly above the century point for first pitch at 5:10 p.m. PDT. Readings will fall into the 80s after sunset.

An Excessive Heat Warning continues over most of Southern California today as triple digit heat is being felt once again. Several record highs have already been recorded today.

Santa Ana winds blowing in from the desert areas have been bringing the hot temperatures to the region, aided by a strong area of high pressure aloft. As the high shifts slightly east, the winds are expected to decrease and temperatures will begin to cool slightly into the upper 80s and 90s for the rest of the week in Southern California.

The World Series will move to Houston for games three, four and five, played on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday (if necessary). A cold front moving into Texas will bring in much cooler readings with temperatures in the 60s.
