Atlas rocket poised to launch massive military satellite

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- An Atlas 5 rocket is poised to launch a huge military communications satellite on Friday unless Florida's summertime weather proves to dampen it's chances.

Weather forecasters at Cape Canaveral Air Force Station indicate only a 40% chance of favorable weather during the Atlas' 44 minute launch window which opens at 8:48 a.m. EDT, on July 19.

Scattered rain showers and overcast skies are forecast over America's Space Coast at that time, Cape Weather reported.
