The latest NFL weather in Buffalo has been brutal as of late, and that doesn't look like it will change for Saturday night's Bills vs. Dolphins matchup at Highmark Stadium.

Interestingly, heavy snow has been in the NFL weather report for Bills vs. Dolphins all week, but more importantly, it's the wind that matters most for football bettors.

According to Bet Labs, NFL unders are 618-496-10 (55.5%) when average wind speeds reach at least 10 mph since 2003.

While snow is expected — and a lot of it — Saturday night in Buffalo, the combination of wet, cold and potentially windy weather could have a significant impact on Bills vs. Dolphins.

With this in mind, let's take a look at the updated NFL weather report for Bills vs. Dolphins, including just how strong the wind will be in Buffalo on Saturday night.

Bills vs. Dolphins NFL Weather Report

According to the National Weather Service, there's a Lake Effect Snow Warning in effect for the region that includes Highmark Stadium in Orchard Park, New York.

Snow is already falling in Buffalo and there's still three to seven more inches possible according to the latest forecast.


In addition, the latest Bills vs. Dolphins weather forecast is also breezy.

Winds of 8-10 mph are expected in Buffalo throughout the night, with gusts up to 23 mph in play as well.

These aren't exactly ideal conditions for Miami quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, who doesn't have much experience in cold weather throughout his college and NFL career. The little experience he does have didn't go all that well.

Since landing at Alabama, Tagovailoa has never started a game with the temperature below 36 degrees — Saturday's Bills vs. Dolphins matchup is expecting average temperatures of around 29 degrees.

In the NFL, he has started three games at 50 degrees or colder and the Dolphins are 0-3 straight up and against the spread, averaging just 14 points in those matchups.
