Warm weather streak continues Sunday at New Era Field, but it may rain

The chances of tailgating comfortably in short-sleeves and shorts diminishes considerably as days deepen into October.

But fans attending the Buffalo Bills' third home game at New Era Field appear to have weather luck on their side again Sunday afternoon.

Forecasts show temperatures will top out in the low 70s.

An umbrella, or rain poncho, might be a good idea.

There's a 40 to 50 percent chance of showers during the game, according to the National Weather Service forecast.
