Weather Forecast: 80% ‘Go’ for Saturday Launch

The Weather Office at NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility in Virginia reports that the forecast is 80-percent favorable for the Orb-2 Antares rocket launch from the Mid-Atlantic Regional Spaceport’s Launch Pad 0A at Wallops. Launch is scheduled for July 12 at 1:14 p.m. EDT.

The main weather concern for the launch appears to be low-level cloudiness and a very slight chance of storm clouds.

Should the launch slip to Sunday, July 13, the current forecast reports 90-percent favorable weather.
