A Quick Weather Update for Launch

Posted: 01:45 PM ET

The shuttle weather forecast for Kennedy Space Center has improved slightly.

It's now 40 percent go for launch for 2:45pm today. (That's up from the earlier 30 percent go for launch).
Shuttle Weather Officer Kathy Winters made the update.

Also: CNN’s Kate Tobin points out that it’s not unusual for a weather postponement could be made at the start of Terminal Countdown (T-Minus 9 Minutes to launch) or even later if weather conditions are dicey.

The flags next to the 'big clock' at The Cape look like they're getting whipped pretty vigorously as of 1:55 EST. I wonder of winds might be flirting with no-go limits.

Please have this shuttle delayed until Mon., Feb. 11th, so we can be present at the launch.
