There is also a Cargo Dragon splashdown tonight after midnight UTC

The 3 Static Firings on the 13th were reported to be successful according to Elon Musk on Twitter
At least one of them looked like a single engine only, they may be deliberately firing individual engines in order to reduce the risk of pad damage or FOD.

High probability of a Flight in the next 48 hours.
TFRs, Marine Safety notices, Road Closures, Residents evacuation all in place.
Flight Termination System has been fitted.
Met conditions are improving on Monday afternoon CST, UTC-6. Currently the site has 26 mph, 18 knot, gusts, but the fog from last few days has cleared.
Closest met information, from BRO, or South Padre Island, or Kopernik Shores on Google.
Live streams on LabPadre on YouTube, NasaSpaceFlight, Everyday Astronaut, and many others.
New short URL for the latest information at https://wenhop.com

They are still trending towards a launch today.
There is a 3 hour window from 3pm - 6pm local CST, 2100 until midnight UTC.
Potential weather hazards are poor visibility, and wind gusts.
Multiple YouTube streams are now live.
NASASpaceFlight.com probably has the best commentary in my opinion, but several others are available.

There are several live feeds of the anticipated flight including this one from Marcus House.
