Weather conditions for today’s Shuttle landing appears favorable

Weather conditions for today’s landing of the Discovery orbiter, STS-120, bringing home seven astronauts appears favorable. The official NASA landing blog posted this just minutes ago:

“Weather at the prime landing site, the Shuttle Landing Facility at Kennedy, looks favorable for the first landing opportunity that will come at 1:01 p.m. Deorbit burn is set for 11:59 a.m. Keeping an eye on weather today from the Shuttle Training Aircraft is astronaut Steven Lindsey, flying the landing area to monitor conditions. While weather is not expected to be an issue for the first landing opportunity, the team will continue to monitor some clouds that should pass by the landing facility by touchdown time.”
