St Pete Police are partnering with the Florida Department of Transportation to crack down on aggressive drivers and people who text and drive. The Enhanced Law Enforcement Engagement program will target some of the deadliest intersections in the city that include Roosevelt Boulevard, Gandy Boulevard, and the Pinellas Bayway. The increased law enforcement will last at least through October.
In just over a week, it will be the official start of hurricane season, and Thursday, The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) will announce its 2023 Atlantic hurricane season outlook. Our partners at 10 Tampa Bay Weather will carry it live, and you can link to that in the Dove Hurricane Guide. Chief Meteorologist Bobby Deskins joined Ann Kelly for a discussion on the season and how to prepare for What’s Good In Tampa Bay.

National Hurricane Service does not give it a strong chance of development, but for the latest information from our partners at 10 Tampa Bay weather, please keep this page bookmarked.
