Arrowhead Stadium is one of the most iconic venues in the NFL, and it becomes an especially interesting place to play in January, when the weather in Kansas City can have an impact.

After defeating the Cleveland Browns on Sunday, the Chiefs will bring fans more January football at Arrowhead, hosting the Buffalo Bills in the AFC Championship.

Sunday's forecast in Kansas City suggest weather could have a significant impact on this game.

Kansas City Weather for Bills-Chiefs on Sunday

The Kansas City weather forecast on Sunday calls for a bit of everything. Temperatures are expected to get as high as 47 degrees in the morning, but could plummet as the day goes on, reaching a low of 26 degrees overnight.

AccuWeather projects the incoming cold front to bring snow, sleet and possibly rain, with a 24% probability of thunderstorms and wind gusts up to 25 MPH in the afternoon. By the evening, the probability of precipitation climbs to 56%, which would likely come in the form of sleet.

This game kicks of at 6:05 p.m. EST, meaning that evening weather could be hitting right around kickoff.

Bad weather could make this game very interesting. The Bills and Chiefs both like to air the ball out and play behind their explosive offenses, but ugly weather could force both teams to take more of a ground-and-pound approach like we saw when they met in Week 6. That went Kansas City's way last time, as the Chiefs racked up 245 rushing yards to the Bills' 84, ultimately going on to win, 26-17.
