SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket with the Zuma payload is set to launch no earlier than Saturday, January 6, from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station. The delay was caused by "extreme weather", likely the result of storm Grayson, which appears to have left the U.S. to deal with freezing cold temperatures. That statement came despite forecasts that had, in recent days, offered a 90 percent chance of acceptable weather for a launch previously scheduled for January 4 and 5.
