Area To Watch off Florida Coast; Weather Could Be An Issue For SpaceX Launch

The Weather Authority

The National Hurricane Center is tracking a cluster of showers and storms along Florida’s east coast associated with an elongated trough and weak surface low.

Tropical development unlikely, but needs to be monitored

This system is unlikely to develop into a tropical depression, but will bring heavy downpours, strong surf, and rip currents to parts of the Florida, Georgia, and South Carolina coasts. In addition, showers and storms are likely along Florida’s Space Coast tomorrow afternoon for the SpaceX Falcon 9 Launch.

Currently, the forecast calls for a 40% chance of weather that could cause a scrub. If that’s the case, the launch would be held this weekend. WHNT News 19 will have live coverage of the launch of the Falcon 9 live at 3:20 pm.
