There was a long drought with no January football played in Buffalo for years, but fans old enough to remember those past games know how much of an impact the weather can have.

Hosting the Baltimore Ravens at Bills Stadium on Saturday, Buffalo's Divisional Round NFL Playoff matchup could be impacted by the weather.

Here's a look at what's in the forecast.

Buffalo Weather for Ravens-Bills on Saturday

Saturday's forecast calls for high temperatures above freezing (36 degrees) on Saturday, but that peak comes early in the day. By kickoff at 8:15 temperatures are expected to drop to 33 degrees and then hover around freezing for the duration of the game.

While there's snow in the forecast early in the week, rain on Friday, and snow again on Sunday, it looks like Saturday will be a day of respite, and neither snow nor rain should have an impact on this game.

Of course, the weather in Buffalo can change on a moment's notice, so this will be a situation to monitor right up until kickoff.

As of Monday afternoon, the Bills have opened as 3-point favorites against the Ravens according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
