15-Nov-17 | JPSS-1

Today has seen the second scrubbed launch attempt for NOAA’s JPSS-1 Earth environmental observer. Tuesday’s early-morning attempt was scrubbed moments after coming out of the T-minus 4 minutes hold due to an anomalous voltage reading during first stage engine slew checks, along with boats in the offshore exclusion area. Today, upper level winds (in excess of 100 knots) were above acceptable limits. ULA is working a 24-hour turnaround but from the main loop discussion leading up to the second scrub it sounds like the upper level winds will continue to be out of limits for at least the next 48 hours.
