NEW YORK (PIX11) –

The front that gave gusty winds and showers this morning is slowly moving off shore thight. Skies will gradually clear out tonight with temperatures dipping into the lower 50s around the city and in the 40s for surrounding suburbs.

Tomorrow will feature sunshine mixing with some clouds. Temperatures will still be on the mild side as the main push of cooler air does not occur until Sunday. Highs will go up into the mid 60s by the afternoon.

On Sunday, a cold front bringing in the colder air mass will pass through during the marathon. While temperatures will be ideal for runners, winds will be gusty at around 15-25 mph during the morning. With the winds from the north, it may make it tough especially at the start when runners will go through the Verrazano Bridge. Highs for the day will be no higher than 50 by midday before taking a tumble through the afternoon.

As you may know, PIX11’s own Mr. G will be running his 30th New York marathon this year. Because of this, The New York Times is publishing an article this weekend about the training he undergoes to keep in top shape for the run. This year, his daughter will tag along him for the first time through all 26+ miles.  The article also mentions about his Sunday routines, his love (or heartache) of the Giants and his appetite for gluten-free meals.

Weather

Just a side note for astronomers. There will be a partial solar eclipse occurring during sunrise Sunday morning. All who want to view this event should take the proper precautions such as using approved filters to block UV light. Sunglasses are not a safe way a view them.

Have a good weekend!
