Severe Weather Forecaster
As mentioned in the previous post, weather at kennedy space center was expected to be around 80-85% permissible with primary concern of cloud ceiling height
Guidance from latest model runs of GFS and NAM agree that the Lifted Condensation Level ( LCL) which determines the height of base of clouds shall remain within the limit
Cloud Cover shall be around 40% during/before launch with light clouds expected.
Since the rule permits light cloud cover less than 50%, the parameter is been given a GREEN SIGNAL
Winds shall be light in intensity and permissible in all ranges and forms.
