Fleece Lined Gloves
Light acrylic "toss" gloves. The ones they sell for 99 cents at the pharmacy.
Mittens - I find gloves leave my finger tips really cold.

Fleece Lined Tights
When it is in the 30s- I'll opt for tights or capris and light running jacket. Sometimes my toss gloves, since my hands get cold.
When it is in the 20s- I'll opt for tights. A base layer and light running jacket. Usually go with a hat or ear band. Either Fleece Lined Gloves or my mittens.
When it is sub 20- I'll opt for the lined tights. A base layer and fleece lined jacket. Hat and mittens.
Sometimes I'll throw on a running scarf to give me another warm layer if the wind is whipping.
I am thinking it is time to invest in some smart wool running socks. My regular run socks leave my toes cold for the first 30 min or so.
I don't know if I heard this somewhere or made it up- but I always dress for 10 degrees warmer than it really is outside. That way I am cold when I start but okay when I am warmed up and running.
Of course, all of this changes with precipitation and then depending on distance too. But these are some of my general Cold Weather Running ideas.
