According to RIA Novosti, the launch has been postponed by one day.

"Since the weather conditions were unfavorable (due to the risk of a lightning strike in flight), Arianespace decided to interrupt the chronology of the final launch of VS24 three minutes 54 seconds before launch," said the operator of the Arianespace cosmodrome.

Earlier, the start of the Soyuz was postponed to December 1, too, due to bad weather.
