Mission Control states Weather Forecast "Encouraging"

Cape weather is seeing the winds are shifting to out of the south and Mission Control just radioed the crew that "this is very encouraging". The image was recorded at 1:14 pm EDT.

The crew was just given a go to begin drinking fluids so that they do not get too hydrated during the entry phase through landing. Also, astronaut Brent Jett has just taken off in a NASA Gulfstream II jet to survey the weather through the 20,00 feet region and below.
