Important Reminders For Motorists and Observers During Tonight’s Falcon Heavy Rocket Launch
By Space Coast Daily // June 24, 2019
Jetty Park will stay open until it reaches capacity
BREVARD COUNTY • PORT CANAVERAL, FLORIDA – City leaders and law enforcement officials are reminding rocket launch observers there is no parking allowed on SR 401 or on the SR 528 median.
Tonight’s Falcon Heavy launch window is scheduled open for 11:30 p.m.
Jetty Park will stay open until it reaches capacity – regular parking fees apply.
Exploration Tower viewing is sold out for tonight’s VIP launch viewing.
Lifting off from Launch Complex 39A at Kennedy Space Center in Florida, the three-booster rocket will take NASA payloads and a total of 24 satellites from government and research institutions to space.
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.
