The forecast issued today from the 45th Weather Squadron calls for a 60 percent chance of acceptable conditions Saturday morning for the launch of the CRS-10 mission from NASA’s Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The main concern is for thick clouds that may violate launch rules. Launch time is 10:01 a.m. EST.
