Here are the 11am EDT Sunday 25 Sep Key Messages for Tropical Storm #Ian. A Hurricane Warning is now in effect for portions of western Cuba.Latest Advisory: hurricanes.gov/#Ian
We're closely monitoring #Ian's forecast while continuing to prepare to roll #Artemis I to the Vehicle Assembly Building, prioritizing employee safety. Data shows a slower-moving storm with a potentially more westerly track, allowing more time for a final rollback decision. (1/2)
Incremental decision-making allows us to preserve an Oct 2 launch opportunity. We continue to rely on @NOAA, @SpaceForceDOD, and @NHC_Atlantic's valuable forecasting as we prioritize the well-being of our employees and our #Artemis I vehicle. https://go.nasa.gov/3LJajoH (2/2)
[email protected] managers continue to closely monitor weather reports and will meet this evening to evaluate whether to roll the @NASA_SLS rocket and @NASA_Orion spacecraft back or remain at the pad to preserve an opportunity for an Artemis launch attempt on Oct. 2: https://go.nasa.gov/3xRZNpq

CT heading under the ML. I suspect they will just now wait for the call. Easy to reverse back out if they opt to stay on 39B.
The crawler transporter is making its way up the ramp at launch pad 39B as NASA gets ready to move the Artemis 1 moon rocket should that become necessary because of the threat from Tropical Storm Ian. Watch live:
