According to the information I have found, I'd guess that something like a period with a strong solar storm would seem to be a poor choice for a launch window since it affects if not the craft, at least the ability to track/communicate with the craft

Yes, it affects the electromgnetic field by the slghtset bit I believe, another thing is that Astronauts hav to be really carefull because the sun's rays are muchmore powerfull out in Space and they should only really beoutside of the spacecraft for a few hours every day.

Also, I found out how space weather is forecasted ( that really surprised me )
Space Weather is forecast with a combination of:
- Theoretical/computer modeling (eg of the Sun's 11 year sunspot cycle)
- Ground-based observations
- Satellite based observations
