NASA managers have postponed the ferry flight of space shuttle Endeavour to Wednesday, Sept. 19. The decision was made to ensure a safe flight for Endeavour and the Shuttle Carrier Aircraft. A low pressure front in the northern Gulf of Mexico is generating thunderstorms along the predicted flight path. 

Managers will hold another weather briefing at 11 a.m. Tuesday.
