Flight path predictions are available here. Scroll down to the flight, date, and anticipated launch site. Click on the GIF link to the right to see a prediction map. Initially the prediction is based on the average winds over 30 years (1981-2010). Starting 15 days before the flight the prediction will be based on the National Weather Service prediction models and will be updated daily. Higher confidence is given to predictions within 3 days of launch, with discussion and final determination of the launch site occurring at that time.
