Below is the NOAA forecast for HRPO's viewing time of 8:30pm to 10pm...
precipitation potential, 16%
sky cover, 50%
relative humidity, 77%

Danko's Clear Dark Sky states that during HRPO's viewing time both the transparency rating and the seeing rating will be "average" (3 out of 5). This evening's 20OGS operator is BRAS Outreach Chairman Ben Toman. The 20OGS will be in operation, but the dropout will not be lowered.

The Resurs 01 rocket is predicted to make a magnitude 2.2 visible pass beginning at 8:50pm. HRPO will remain open until 9:45pm.

At this time NOAA has a Flood Watch in effect until 7am CDT. Additionally at Special Weather Statement from NOAA mentions both "frequent cloud to ground lightning" and rainfall that "may lead to localized flooding".

Because of this HRPO will not open tonight.
