Chilly Weekend for New York City Marathon

A series of cold fronts moving through the Northeast will usher cooler air across the New York area for the weekend.

This will make for a chilly day for folks participating in the New York City Marathon Sunday.

The first cold front moving through Friday will spread gusty winds across the entire Northeast, which has already led to flight delays at La Guardia Airport.

Strong winds also blew over scaffolding in the city, injuring four people, ABC reports.

Winds will subside by Saturday; however, another cold front is setting up to move through Saturday night, bringing a chilly northerly breeze with it.

Temperatures when the first wave of runners start the New York City Marathon will be in the upper 40s, but the AccuWeather.com RealFeel® will be in the upper 30s as a result of the chilly breeze from the north.
