The complex should be clear within 5 minutes not starting to clear as PAO sad.

Starting with warning-sound on pad to make sure everybody knows it's time to get out of there.

Per briefing yesterday, the wind limits depend on the direction.  They are more sensitive to winds from the north than winds from the west.  So the Air Force weather guy (SMG, I guess) was saying that if the winds change to more westerly, that's good.

Edit: he's not from SMG, thanks Jim for the correction

PSA #1: EST does NOT mean "Eastern Time".  Use "Eastern" or "ET" instead, all year round, and avoid this common error.  Google "EST vs EDT".
PSA #2: It's and its: know the difference and quietly impress grammar pedants.  Google "angry flower its" .

SMG is NOAA and only at JSC.   The LWO (Launch Weather Officer) is from the 45th Weather Squadron
