Forecast Remains 70 Percent ‘Go’

Launch Weather Officer Mike McAleenan informed the launch teams that today’s outlook forecasts a 70 percent chance of acceptable conditions at launch time. The concern is for cumulus clouds and the possibility of having to fly through precipitation. A light system of precipitation that is moving into the area is expected to clear away from the launch site by 9:20 a.m., about 20 minutes before launch time from Launch Complex 39A.
