SpaceX launch planned for Sunday evening

CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. -- SpaceX is expected to attempt a third launching of the Falcon 9 rocket and six Orbcomm satellites late Sunday afternoon, but weather is a concern.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected and Air Force meteorologists predict a 20 percent chance of adequate weather. The launch window has been widened from the normal hour to 5:30 p.m. to 8:08 p.m.

Weather forced Saturday's launch to be canceled and fluctuating rocket tank pressures stopped Friday's attempt.
