According to Accuweather, the Los Angeles area has been experiencing unusual heat for this time of year in February. Temperature highs have continued to rise and, as a result, the National Weather Service issued an Excessive Heat Watch for Southern California areas. According to the Washington Post, the heat advisories issued were the first in California’s history to come in February.

Heading into today’s game, the warmest Super Bowls on record happened in 1973 and 2003 with temperature highs reaching 84 and 81 degrees respectively. According to The Weather Channel, the temperature may reach a high of 86 degrees today around kickoff. Should that be the case, Super Bowl LVI would become the warmest Super Bowl played in NFL history.
