[b]Weather forecast worsens[/b]
The most recent weather forecast for today's Ares I-X launch is now equal to yesterday's pre-scrub outlook, with a 60 percent chance that the conditions will violate launch criteria during the four-hour window opening at 8:00 a.m. EDT.
There were four lightning strikes recorded overnight in the vicinity of the launch pad, the closest about half a mile from the vehicle, which will require teams to retest instrumentation on the rocket. That work is expected to progress in parallel with the other tasks scheduled during the countdown.
Earlier forecasts had called for a weather front to be pulled farther north, providing hope for a slightly improved set of conditions today.
