I meant to ask this many times before...
Why doesn't the Space Force weather forecasting Delta at Vandenberg publish public weather forecasts as the Cape unit does?
This one got bumped a day due to the series of storms along coastal California.  The break after the formerly-scheduled Sunday launch now is looking like it's not going to happen.  Sunday's storm is looking like a morning event, as they're moving faster than before.  And Monday might get even more rainy than Sunday.

Don't be surprised if this one delays again.

Very good question. The US Space Force's Space Launch Delta 30 unit covers Vandenberg SFB, it does not have a weather tracking unit.

Very good question. Although the US Space Force's Space Launch Delta 30 squadron covers Vandenberg SFB, it does not have a weather squadron.

Space Launch Delta 30 is the major unit at Vandenberg, it is a delta and not a squadron.

It has a weather flight.

Just an anomaly.  The weather doesn't change that much.

I just corrected my post to reflect that Space Launch Delta 30 is a delta unit and not a squadron. Can you provide a source showing that this unit has a weather flight?
