Forecast Details:

An upper-level ridge over the Southeast U.S. will keep the shower and thunderstorm activity over Central Florida below seasonal norms.

The surface ridge axis is south of the Space Coast, however, which will keep the isolated afternoon convection along the Space Coast. This southwesterly flow will also bring high temperatures in the 90s over the Spaceport.

Delay probability of violating launch weather constraints: 40 percent

Primary concerns:  Anvil Cloud Rule, Thick Cloud Layer Rule

Coverage of tonight’s launch can be seen on Space Coast Daily TV.
