So it sounds like fuel loading at T-35 is the reason for the instantaneous window. Not discussed is, excluding the fuel loading, how large is the window. 

Delaying fuel loading in a bad weather instance is the logical thing to do, letting you target later when weather is getting better later.

I think the shuttle had about a 10 min window. It would depend on how much fuel margin they have which might not be much when trying to recover the 1st stage.
