Bills Forecast: Bitter cold air for Bills’ Wild Card game

ROCHESTER, N.Y. (WHEC) — We continue to monitor and tweak the forecast for the big Bills game on Saturday.

Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to tweak it for the better. We’re still expecting air temperatures in the mid-single digits around kickoff, with temperatures falling a few degrees for the second half. The good news is wind won’t be an issue, but even a light wind will drop the wind chill values below zero. We’ll see dry weather, so snow also will be a non-factor.

If you do plan on venturing to Buffalo to cheer on the Bills, it is highly recommended that you cover as much of your skin as possible. That includes hats, gloves, scarves and ski masks. Sitting in the elements for three hours may actually begin to take a toll on your body. Cheer hard to keep that blood flowing! Saturday night’s conditions will come closer to rivaling the coldest Bills home game on record.
