Chiefs - Bills weather forecast: Will it snow in the divisional round game in Buffalo?

The freezing weather that has plagued NY State for the past few days is set to continue but less snowfall is forecast.

ORCHARD PARK, NEW YORK - JANUARY 15: Fans take their seats in the snow before the game between the Buffalo Bills and the Pittsburgh Steelers at Highmark Stadium on January 15, 2024 in Orchard Park, New York.

Despite sub zero temperatures and challenging travel conditions caused by days of snowfall in New York State, 70,000 fans braved the elements on Monday night to see the Buffalo Bills prevail and advance to the Divisional Round play-off of the 2023-24 NFL season.

With the game at Highmark Stadium postponed from the original Sunday slot, the Bills issued an appeal to volunteers to help shift high snow from the pitch area, stands and entrance points to the stadium to ensure that the Wild Card round game against the Pittsburgh Steelers could finally take place on Monday.

Fans in Buffalo responded and a team of snow clearers managed to leave the playing surface (which lacks undersoil heating) in a playable condition for the rearranged 4:30 pm (ET) start time on Monday.

A dazzling performance from Josh Allen propelled the Bills past the Steelers (31-17) to set up another clash at Highmark Stadium as Kansas City Chiefs are the visitors to NY State next Sunday.
