NASA's Public Channel is showing the 50th anniversary special, and the schedule does not list the launch.

The NASA TV site off the main page has a link to launch coverage just above the Public Channel selection.

Weather is still acceptable, but has worsened recently. They are looking at ways to avoid the bad weather - which was expected, as it's the rainy season.

What's the reason for the spacecraft spinning up?

From IBEX blog

"NASA's IBEX Launch Blog 12:30 p.m. - The IBEX satellite will be the first to study the "termination shock" that marks the outer boundary of the solar system. It is an area where the solar wind generated by the sun meets with the turbulent gas from the rest of the universe. The two Voyager satellites and Pioneer are the only spacecraft to have traveled to the edge of the solar system. "
