Rocket have released their analysis from Tuesday.

“Analysis of yesterday's launch attempt is complete. Launch was aborted due to rising liquid oxygen temperatures - the result of a LOx chilldown bleed schedule not compatible with the warm conditions of the day. The fix is simple. Next attempt tomorrow! #StillTesting “.

Well it was about 30 degrees C (86 F) at the Launch site and the rocket is black.

The weather forecast for the launch site today is for showers this morning but clearing this afternoon.
First rain for about a month.
