When is Fēngyún-3C planned to launch?

The CEOS/ESA EO Handbook states July 2013, but this was last updated October 2012, and I don't think it's actually been launched. WMO-sat.info says >= 2013, but is not specific either. Googling Fēngyún-3C or FY-3C does not lead me to more up-to-date information. I don't know any Chinese, so perhaps there is more current information accessible to those who do through the CMA NSMC website.

    $\begingroup$ @gerrit, I voted to close because this is a transient question (answered today, wrong tomorrow). Think it would better fit into either Meta or the Pod Bay. As you well know, a launch can be planned a hundred times. $\endgroup$ – Deer Hunter Aug 8 '13 at 19:40

    $\begingroup$ @DeerHunter That's worth a discussion, see this meta question. $\endgroup$ – gerrit Aug 8 '13 at 19:46

    $\begingroup$ No official date yet, but I've found this thread on NASA Space Flight Forum that seems to be updated frequently enough on the status of the mission. $\endgroup$ – TildalWave Aug 8 '13 at 20:13

    $\begingroup$ I liked the comment another closer added. This is too transient in time. A year from now, this will be a meaningless question. Like when will the F9-Cassipe mission launch. Sept 5 2013 is the date. What does the question mean on Sept 6 then? $\endgroup$ – geoffc Aug 9 '13 at 0:11
