UPDATE, Nov. 1st: NYC Marathon weather: The forecast calls for cold temperatures and windy conditions. In fact, the area is under a wind advisory from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. Sunday. The high temp for the day may not even hit 50, and at start time temperatures will be in the low 40s (but with the wind will feel like only a few degrees above freezing).

Dressing in layers is always a good idea for the NYC Marathon, but even moreso for this year's race. Good luck!
