STS-133 Shuttle Discovery Launch Delayed to 11/5!

With rain showers and low clouds sweeping over NASA's Florida spaceport, agency managers decided early Thursday not to fuel the shuttle Discovery, delaying launch another 24 hours to Friday at 3:04 p.m. EDT. While conditions will improve in the wake of a cold front, forecasters are predicting a 40 percent chance of high winds that could cause another scrub.....Here's the weather outlook over the next days.

  • Friday @ 3:04 p.m. EDT: 60 percent favorable, concerns for low-cloud ceilings and launch pad winds

  • Saturday @ 2:41 p.m. EDT: 40 percent favorable, concern for launch pad winds

  • Sunday @ 1:15 p.m. EST: 70 percent favorable, concerns for crosswinds at emergency KSC runway and launch pad winds

  • Monday @ 12:52 p.m. EST: 90 percent favorable, slight concern for crosswinds
