 CBS2 meteorologist Lonnie Quinn said that the snow will diminish by 1 a.m., Thursday and be out of around 7 a.m.-9 a.m. later that morning.

He forecasted that New York City may get 2 to 5 inches of snow, while Middlesex County, New Jersey, could receive between 4 to 8 inches of snow.

Under ordinary circumstances, a storm of this sort wouldn’t be a big deal, but large swaths of the landscape are still an open wound, with many of Sandy’s victims still mucking out their homes and cars.
