(AP) CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. – SpaceX is getting ready to launch another round of Starlink satellites into orbit on Thursday, according to a forecast released by the 45th Weather Squadron at Patrick Space Force Base.

The forecast calls for an 80% chance of favorable weather conditions for the launch of the Falcon 9 rocket.

According to the forecast, the launch window is nearly two hours long, starting at 4:49 p.m. and ending at 6:47 p.m.

If the launch is delayed until Friday, the weather chances dip slightly to 70%.

SpaceX last launched a Starlink mission on Dec. 2 when the private space agency sent 48 of its internet satellites into orbit.

This will be the 33rd batch of Starlink satellites launched by SpaceX.
