The Weather Authority is closely monitoring the weather for launch day at Kennedy Space Center in Florida! The SLS rocket is expected to launch from launch pad 39B. The launch window opens at 7:33 a.m. CT and the launch window is two hours.
Diving into the forecast models, it looks like there will be a chance of rain under mostly cloudy skies. Temperatures should be in the upper 70s near 80 degrees and it will be humid. Surface winds will be from the east, southeast and will seem light. Sure, the weather on the surface matters, but so does what happens above! Upper level winds should be favorable for launch, so we’ll be checking that with NASA as we get closer to launch day, Monday, August 29.
