The coldest air to reach New York City so far this fall will have residents and those involved with the New York City Marathon shivering on Sunday.

Gone on Sunday will be the temperatures in the 60s that prevailed on Saturday.

A blast of chilly air will instead hold Sunday's temperatures to the 50-degree mark, making for New York City's coolest day since April 12.

A high in the upper 50s and lows in the middle 40s are more common in New York City during early November.

Temperatures when the first wave of runners start the New York City Marathon will be around 46 degrees, but the RealFeel® temperatures will be in the lower 30s as a result of the chilly breeze.

Before the race starts, there could be enough breaks in the clouds for residents and visitors to catch a glimpse of the partial solar eclipse at sunrise.

Sunday is also shaping up to be a chilly day for those planning on heading to the New York Jets game when they host the New Orleans Saints early Sunday afternoon.

Skies will partially clear on Sunday night, allowing temperatures to drop down to the lower 30s in Midtown. Lows in the 20s will have those in the far northern and western suburbs shivering.

The coldest of the upcoming days will come on Monday as temperatures fail to rise out of the middle 40s.

The good news is that there will not be a large temperature difference in actual and RealFeel temperatures on Monday with less wind present and plenty of sunshine in control. Meteorologist Brian Lada contributed to the content of this story.
