Possible thunderstorms and lightning could delay a scheduled Delta IV rocket launch Thursday from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The United Launch Alliance rocket is targeting an 8:08 p.m. liftoff from Launch Complex 37. The Air Force's 45th Weather Squadron forecasts a 30 percent chance of favorable launch conditions. If the mission is delayed, the next launch window will be on Friday, when weather forecasts improve to 80% “go.” The Delta IV contains the sixth of 12 satellites updating the Air Force’s Global Positioning System constellation.
