There isn't as much snow in Aberdeen as there is in some other parts of the state. But between the snow and wind, schools are closed and plows are out.
In town, plows are clearing emergency routes for now. The Public Works Director says he will issue a city-wide snow removal alert. A schedule for that snow removal should come out sometime Wednesday afternoon.
Out in the country, plow operators are working as we speak and have been since the morning. With ditches empty, they aren't running into snow drifting in a lot of places but they are eyeing some problem spots.
Both county and state officials say plows are clearing snow and will continue to do so until dark.
Crews at all levels in the Aberdeen area say they're prepared to head out early tomorrow morning if needed.
Erich Schaffhauser is monitoring the snow in northern South Dakota and will have more later on KELOLAND News.
