It appears even Mother Nature is supporting the Cubs this World Series. 

Jeff Coen with the Chicago Tribune posted a photo to social media Tuesday showing what appeared to be a "W"-shaped cloud hanging over Chicago.

"God hangs his 'W' flag," the tweet read. 

Cubs fans have been finding unique ways to "Fly the W" ever since the team began their historic postseason run this year. 

The tradition of flying of the white “W” flag has been done to indicate Cubs victories since the 1930’s. In more recent times, fans have been encouraged to #FlyTheW by the team itself.

In videos posted to the Cubs' Twitter feed, fans are shown throughout the world displaying the “W” flag to celebrate the team’s postseason success, and Kyle Schwarber even starred in an ad about the famous banner.
