From a news release from the 10th China International Aviation & Aerospace Exhibition, FY-2H is under construction by CASC. This is the first official confirmation of FY-2H. Source: http://bbs.9ifly.cn/forum.php?mod=viewthread&tid=14194&fromuid=24484

Vacuum tests of the FY-2H meteorological satellite were recently completed.

It's about the subject?

BEIJING, April 16 (Xinhua) -- China will launch a new meteorological satellite in the first half this year to further boost its weather forecasting capabilities, according to China Aerospace Science and Technology Corporation.
The Fengyun-II 09 satellite, the last in the Fengyun-II series, will be able to collect meteorological, maritime, and hydrological data to help weather forecast in China and neighboring regions...
...or another?

Apparently, yes.  And, as such, the satellite count in the article includes the first Fengyun 2 s/c, which never made it to the launch pad.  It was destroyed in a launch processing accident in 1994.

That is why I have always called the first FY-2 to reach orbit "FY-2 1R", R = replacement.

Some notes that I collected, from various sources, several days ago, before the NOTAM revealed the approximate launch time:

FY-2     Launch Date/Time (UTC)
A          June 10, 1997 / 12:01
B          June 25, 2000 / 11:50
C          Oct. 19, 2004 / 01:20
D          Dec. 8, 2006 / 00:53
E          Dec. 23, 2008 / 00:54
F          Jan. 13, 2012 / 00:56
G         Dec. 31, 2014 / 01:02
H         June 5, 2018 / ~13:10 (deduced)

Apparently, there are two possible launch windows for the FY-2's, separated by approximately 12 hours?
***

Also, apparently, this will be the next-to-last launch for the CZ-3A?  This and one more Beidou-2 IGSO payload?

Per NSF Schedule I currently count 5 manifested fly (unclear if Standard (G1) or Enhanced (G2) CZ-3A's will be used: https://forum.nasaspaceflight.com/index.php?topic=5060.msg1827192#msg1827192

CZ-3A and the rest of its families is replaced by configurations of the CZ-6, CZ-7 and CZ-8 families.

In fact CALT just reported a few days ago that they are shipping a CZ-3A and a CZ-3B to Xichang in early June. Presumbly the 3A will launch one of the two remaining "transition" 2nd generation BDS navigation satellites.

It seems there is one window for summer launches and another one for winter launches.
This message reflects my personal opinion based on open sources of information.
