ABERDEEN, S.D.–The National Weather Service Office in Aberdeen will be without its own radar for an estimated seven days beginning October 21st.

Warning Coordination Meteorologist Kelly Serr says the radar will be down so replacement work can be done on a standby generator, fuel tanks and accompanying components.

During the downtime, radars in Rapid City, Bismarck, Grand Forks, Minneapolis, Sioux Falls and North Platte will be used to detect any approaching severe weather in northeast South Dakota and Traverse and Big Stone counties of western Minnesota.
