T-0 13:45
Launch window is 13:00-16:00

Upper level winds are a concern at the moment

Hold at T-00:20:00
Upper level wind violation.

Just a hold not a scrub.

And an abort after engine start. That will mean a scrub for today.

Edit: Never mind, they're seeing if they can recycle today.

Why does SpaceX need to launch Starlink from California?  Does the more northern latitude help get the sats in the proper orbit easier/sooner/cheaper?
