The satellite in A3 is going to outage in the next few days and hope we can see the change on the official GPS website :)

I think that SVN38 outage relates to maintenance and does not relate to slot's name changes.

Yes.  However, SVN 39 in A5 has a Forecast Unusable UFN.  I suspect you'll get a DECOM NANU shortly after SVN 67 launches.

Same thing happened with SVN 36 when 64 launched.

Viewing opportunity TLEs from SEESAT website

http://www.satobs.org/seesat/May-2014/0096.html

This is my estimate of the transfer orbit over UK & Europe tonight,
assuming launch at 0008 UT; probably within 2 minutes.

1 90000U 14500A   14136.00400000  .00000000  00000-0  00000+0 0    00
2 90000  55.0000 134.0700 6032000  35.6000 352.6158  4.07217600    08

This morning's 45th WS forecast was 70% chance of violating, and radar is showing a heavy cell about an hour away from the cape.  At which point would the threat of lightning impact tanking ops?

So it is possible that SVN38 will get A5 (not A6) slot after SVN39 retiring and SVN64 commissioning.

Would anybody know the mass of the vehicle following at the start of the second stage and after the first second stage cutoff?

It's still raining heavily at the Cape, and while the storm's moving steadily east, the edge of the storm has just cleared the Orlando city center. Could be a very close call but I don't think it will launch today...  :-\

Via SFN:

SCRUB! The weather is not going to cooperate with a launch of the Delta 4 rocket from Cape Canaveral tonight. The launch team will begin a 24-hour recycle of the countdown and try again Friday evening at 8:04 p.m. EDT.

Someone in the area saw a smaller sounding rocket go up at around 4:30.  Is this a standard procedure for launches from the Cape? High altitude wind monitoring, perhaps?

Oh well:

 

Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. (May 15, 2014) – The launch of a United Launch Alliance Delta IV carrying the Air Force’s Global Positioning System IIF-6 payload was scrubbed today due to the violation of multiple weather criteria. The launch is rescheduled for Friday, May 16 from Space Launch Complex-37 at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station, Fla. The launch time is 8:03 p.m. EDT. The forecast for May 16 shows a 90 percent chance of favorable weather conditions for the launch tomorrow.

Overall, this has been a very, very bad two weeks for space-flight fans.
