There is a 70 percent chance of favorable weather for Saturday’s planned launch of the eleventh SpaceX cargo resupply mission to the International Space Station. The forecast provided by the U.S. Air Force 45th Weather Squadron cites anvil clouds, cumulus clouds, and flight through precipitation as the primary concerns.

The vehicle is carrying a Dragon spacecraft loaded with about 6,000 pounds of experiments and supplies bound for the space station.
