I'm surprised no weather forecast has been issued for this launch - bad sign?

That used to be reliable as a bad sign, but the 45th Weather Squadron has been so flakey for the last several months about posting the forecasts that a missing forecast really doesn't mean anything any more.

The NGA has neither updated nor canceled the marine hazard notices.

Looks like a one day slip.

That would make launch circa 04:20 UTC on February 15 = circa 11:20 pm EST on February 14.

Emre Kelly tweeted that hazard area earlier.  NOTAM and NOTMAR haven't changed yet.

An L-1 (based on local time) weather forecast was eventually posted.  The weather is poor for both days, so a one day slip isn't really going to help in that regard.

It's a soupy night on the Space Coast and I'm still awake. I checked in on B1059 at LC-40 in hopes of signs of life for a static fire, but, no joy. The @SpaceX Starlink V1 L19 launch is currently scheduled NET Feb 14th at 11:20 pm local. (04:20 UTC)

Parson me if I missed something but do we know why B1059 is static firing? The booster hasn't done that since her maiden re-flight so I'm wondering if they swapped an engine or something.
