CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- The weather is looking even more promising for Tuesday's launch of space shuttle Discovery.
Forecasters said Sunday there is an 80% chance the weather will cooperate for Discovery's early morning flight to the international space station. That's better than previous forecasts.
There is a 40% chance that thunderstorms could interfere with Monday afternoon's fueling. A delay of more than a couple of hours could stall the launch.
Top NASA managers will meet Sunday afternoon for one last review. The only outstanding issue is a shuttle power controller that was replaced a week ago. Testing for that is looking good.
Discovery and a crew of 7 will deliver supplies and equipment to the space station.
