The major storm predicted for the area fizzled to less than 2 inches of snow last week. Weather forecasts had originally predicted up to 8 inches of the white stuff by the afternoon of Jan. 11 but the actual Sioux City results, which was the closest available for Akron and Westfield, were:

• Jan. 10: Trace Jan. 13: Dry

• Jan. 11 1.2 inches Jan. 14: 0.4 inches

• Jan. 12 Dry Jan. 15: Trace

No precipitation is forecast until late Saturday, Jan. 20 and into Sunday, Jan. 21, according to National Weather Service of Sioux Falls, S.D., Meteorologist Brad Temeyer. It isn’t a significant system, at this point, but there is potential for some snow accumulation. The winds are expected to pick up over the weekend, too.

On Monday, Jan. 15, area residents endured another wind chill advisory as wind chills were still at -21 degrees with the temperature hovering at 0 degrees.
