Winter Storm Quinn brought rain, snow and frigid conditions to much of the Northeast on Wednesday. And then it brought thundersnow.

The storm is the second nor’easter to hit several states in the past week, disrupting commutes and travel itineraries, causing some schools to close and bringing more than a foot of snow to some places.

Winter Storm Quinn, which is expected to bring 7 to 11 inches of snow to the New York City area, also surprised some people with thundersnow — a rare phenomenon caused when lightning occurs within snow storms.
