Per Spaceflightnow.com

Tropical Storm Bertha has formed over the Atlantic Ocean just off the coast of South Carolina. The storm is near the Falcon 9 rocket's ground track as it will fly northeast from the Kennedy Space Center to align with the orbit of the International Space Station.

Officials are tracking downrange weather conditions and sea states, and plan to meet at 10 a.m. EDT (1400 GMT) to discuss whether the conditions are acceptable in the event the Crew Dragon spacecraft has to perform a launch abort maneuver

An updated weather outlook from the 45th Weather Squadron shows a 50 percent chance of conditions being favorable for launch today at 4:33 p.m. EDT (2033 GMT).

This does not take into account conditions downrange in the Crew Dragon's abort zones, which are a significant concern today after the formation of Tropical Storm Bertha off the coast of South Carolina

12:22
Dragon astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken are receiving a weather briefing at this time to get an update on evolving conditions at the Kennedy Space Center and at downrange abort sites.

Ok, 2nd times a charm?
NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken will board a SpaceX Crew Dragon spacecraft on top of a Falcon 9 rocket Saturday for a launch at 3:22 p.m. EDT (1922 GMT) from the Kennedy Space Center in Florida, but there's a threat stormy weather could stymie the launch attempt
