    "After what happened with Hurricane Irene, you don't know what's going to happen anymore around here with this flooding," he said.

    But any snow expected was limited to higher elevations of northwest New Jersey and the Hudson Valley, which were expected to see 2 to 4 inches of sloppy snow in the evening.

    All rain in the area tapered off by 3 a.m., leaving behind dry but cold air.

    Highs are expected to be in the 40s on Friday.
