According to the 45th Weather Squadron at Patrick Air Force Base, the "primary launch weather concerns will be the cumulus clouds and precipitation associated with this activity, along with electric fields from any more robust showers."

Cape Canaveral was cloudy for most of the day but as the sunset, the skies appeared clear over Launch Pad 39A.

If there are lightning strikes within ten miles of the launch pad, it will be scrubbed. 

The good news is the latest computer models have just light rain occurring at Cape Canaveral during the launch window.
