Jamie spotted the rain and it seems that was a live image as the launch has been postponed due to rain (no news on how long etc.)

Here's the official giving the news ;)

 "The new launch date and time are at 6:28 a.m. on February 22 (Wed.)"

It's one day only, launch will be today (UT, of course).

Ok, now that Ariane 5 ECA has suffered a scrub, let's have a longer run at this.

Rocket is out of the assembly building and angled ready for launch.
