Space Force forecasters are forecasting strongly favorable weather for Tuesday’s upcoming SpaceX launch, a mission set to boost another batch of Starlink internet satellites.

Forecasters said conditions at Cape Canaveral Space Force Station should be 80% “kick off” for the Falcon 9 launch window that runs from 8:56 a.m. to 10:57 a.m. EDT. However, some clouds around Launch Complex 40 may continue into Tuesday.

“The collision of a sea breeze Monday evening through early Tuesday morning will cause eastbound showers over central Florida, and this rain has the potential to linger in the launch window,” Sunday said. “The main weather concern for Tuesday’s launch attempt is the base of the cumulus cloud.”

Meanwhile, weather conditions in the Atlantic could pose a “moderate” risk to the SpaceX drone ship scheduled to host the missile’s landing. Should be back in Port Canaveral by the end of the week.

Tuesday’s launch will be the 41st mission for Starlink, SpaceX’s network of low-Earth satellites that sends an Internet connection back to Earth. To date, the company has launched more than 2,000 satellites and deployed stations for remote users, disaster areas, and even Ukrainian officials fighting the Russian invasion.

It will also be the eleventh launch of this year for the Space Coast, which maintains a flight rhythm of once a week or more.
