Here's the 7 day forecast.
Dean or any space coast people....
We are flying down on Monday for the Tuesday launch. NASA has given the green light for the Discovery launch. How is the weather looking for Tuesday a.m.? NOAA & Weather Underground are both showing overcast with a 30% chance of rain. Is that the typical afternoon showers possible, otherwise partly cloudy?Thanks, Dave
Everything is for sale @ a certain $$
That's more like it! Thanks Dean.
Cool. I'll be in Sebastian on Monday and Tuesday. I read that there are only 10 or 11 missions left for the shuttle with the last one being in 2010.
I can't talk about it right now, it's being handled by the Postal Inspector. Those guys don't mess around!
already started a thread. crew has already arrived at KSC! Countdown starts tomorrow! GO DISCOVERY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have not seen updated weather info for a go no go launch, it's simply to early.

From Florida Today Saturday:
Clouds, showers in launch forecast
Shuttle Discovery, the Harmony module and seven astronauts are ready to fly Tuesday and the launch team is tracking no issues, but clouds and showers could be trouble.
"We're tracking no issues," said Charlie Blackwell-Thompson, the NASA test director. Thompson said the team is prepared to make up to four launch attempts in five days, beginning Tuesday, if that becomes necessary because of the weather.
The weather forecast issued this morning calls for a 40 percent chance of clouds and showers preventing a launch on either Tuesday, Wednesday or Thursday morning.
A frontal boundary moving into the area today should bring showers beginning today and lasting throughout the week, shuttle weather officer Kathy Winters said. Winters foresees the front moving out of the area by launch day, but cumulus clouds within 10 miles of the pad and lingering showers could be a problem.

Official word right now is 40% prohibiting launch which means there is a 60% chance we will launch.
I totally forgot there was a launch. Thanks for reminding me!
