3pm Weather: The storms continue to dwindle. Light rain over KSC is keeping temps in the 70s, so even after it ends there may not be time to warm up enough to fire new storms. The 2pm EDT / 18 UTC upper air sounding shows a lot of moisture but limited instability.

One small leftover shower just south of Titusville with a few lightning strikes. That gets weaker every scan.

All other activity should ne well away from the pad at T0.

Technical poll completed.  Looking at one item on the hydraulic run-up rate, no concerns at this time, but still watching.  Weather is improving at the launch site. 

Sounding better and better!
