It was a raw, gray and damp day for the seventh New York City Marathon. At race time the temperature was in the upper 40s and light showers moved in after 1PM. This was the first race to go through each of NYC's five boroughs - and the first time the race was held in late October.
The warmest and coldest temperatures of the month were experienced in less than 24 hours. After a high of 76 degrees yesterday (14 degrees above average), a strong cold moved through during the evening and knocked the temperature down 40 degrees to 36 by 7AM today (12 degrees below average).
