Rain and wind pounded the tri-state Wednesday and some parts of the area in higher elevations even saw snow overnight.

Flood advisories were in effect for most of the tri-state area, with flood warnings issued for parts of New Jersey, including Monmouth, Middlesex, Hunterdon, Morris, Sussex and Warren counties.

It was enough for some water-weary residents of New Jersey to wish for snow.

"Snow, it gets accumulated," said Chuck Bender of Clifton. "You know, we deal with it like we do here in the Northeast, like we always do."

"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.
