But there is some good news: road closures around Boca Chica suggest the test could still go ahead before the week is over.
Cameron County Judge Eddie Trevino Jr has ordered the roads to be closed on Thursday, with backup closures on Friday, Monday and Thursday.
The closures are all in effect between 3pm and midnight GMT (9am and 6pm CTS).
If the Starship launches this week or at the start of next, it will be in this time window.
Similarly, the US Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) has issued flight restrictions for the airspace around Boca Chica and Brownsville, Texas.
