Apparently the weather conditions are now 90% GO - few clouds standing in the way of a clear sky.

Currently patchy fog being reported around the cape area. AWOS station at the shuttle facility is 1/2 nm visibility with 100ft of vertical visibility. The skid strip is reporting 9nm of visibility but only 5500ft of visibility at the end of Runway 13. Orlando human augmented observation shows a few clouds at 25,000. Winds aloft at 300mb are around 55kts with the upstream 00z sounding at Tallahassee showing 85 kts at 180mb.

Into funky music.

I think their "29 watching" webcast number is a "bit" off too. ;) Now 1255 - and it'll be more, so that's catching up.

Special 02z (9p Eastern) Cape Canaveral atmospheric sounding data is in.

The fog layer looks no more than 100-200 meters deep right at the surface. Temperature/Dew Point profile looks normal for this time of year in Florida. Highest windspeed is ~180mb at 94 kts.
