Weather Key for Ferry Flight Planners

Technicians attach a cover over Discovery's engines
Forecasters are watching the weather over the southeastern United States as they evaluate when to begin the cross-country flight to return space shuttle Discovery to NASA's Kennedy Space Center in Florida. The flight will not begin today, although the shuttle has been cleared to make the trip. Discovery is at NASA's Dryden Flight Research Center in California where technicians are expected to hoist it to the top of a modified 747 this morning in preparation for the trek.
