The weather in Orchard Park will be wet and windy. Skies will be cloudy to start the game, then give way to partly cloudy skies by game’s end. Winds will be out of the southwest at around 15 - 20 mph throughout the game, with higher wind gusts possible. Temperatures will start the game in the upper 60s and rise into the lower 70s as the game progresses. Humidity will be in the 80s throughout the game. The risk of showers will be around 55% to start the game, declining to about 25% by game’s end. A steady rain is forecast for the hours leading up to the game, with skies clearing later on as the game gets going. This will make for some difficult field conditions. A sloppy field could make the running game difficult, and high winds could make the passing game difficult. This game probably sets up as a defensive struggle.
Enjoy the game everybody.
