Weather officials from Rocket Lab predict an 80 percent chance of favorable weather conditions for today's launch window.
The primary weather concern for the launch window is ground winds.
TROPICS CubeSats use different wavelengths to see different features of storms in their surrounding environment, and they make more frequent passes of tropical cyclones than current weather satellites. The data provided will help scientists better understand the processes that affect these high-impact storms, ultimately leading to improved modeling and prediction.
