BUFFALO, N.Y. — For the second week in a row, it's going to be a seasonably chilly gameday in Orchard Park. We had sun for the dolphins, but this time, snow is in the forecast.
The Cincinnati Bengals are heading to Western New York this weekend to face the Buffalo Bills in one of the AFC Divisional playoff games at Highmark Stadium. Kickoff is at 3 p.m. Sunday, and we will have a bit of snow along with a wintry mix.
Sunday morning temperatures will start in the upper 20s in Orchard Park under a mostly cloudy sky. Clouds will stick around for the entire day and eventually drop some snow across the region. Snow showers will begin to move from the south Sunday morning and reach the stadium by the early afternoon, so many of those tailgating before the game will stay dry.
Light snow will fall by kickoff at 3 p.m. But with temperatures rising into the mid-30s, there is the chance that rain could mix with snow. But mainly SNOW is expected Sunday in the Southtowns.
These light snow showers will continue throughout the game, dropping about an inch or two in Orchard Park. Thankfully, winds will be light.
For those heading to the game, dress warm and in several layers. Winter gear will also be needed to stay dry with the expected snow. Drivers could run into a few slick spots too leaving the stadium with an accumulation on the ground.
