Travel And The Tropics

At Tampa International Airport it’s already one of the busiest travel times. Between now and Sunday they once again anticipate record number of people flying for the 4th of July holiday, and had weather related delays on Wednesday. Call ahead for flight information and it’s always a good idea to reserve parking at TPA.

AAA is out with travel advice for the 4th of July holiday. Once again, it’s going to be very crowded with some 71 million planning to head out. If you’re driving, the heaviest traffic on the 4th will be between 2-7 pm. Lower gas prices help, but tropical weather could change that.

Plenty track in the tropics from the Dove Hurricane Guide and 10 Tampa Bay Weather. Nothing directly threatens Florida, but from Bobby Deskins “Invest95L in the central Atlantic looks to have a good chance of developing as conditions in the Atlantic look good for it. The NHC says 70% chance and some model guidance suggests that it could even be a hurricane by the time it reaches the southern Windward Islands late Sunday/Monday.”

The Florida Department of Revenue has published the list of items that will be available tax-free starting Monday for what they call “Freedom Summer”. The entire month of July will be dedicated to giving us a chance to buy the things we love to use, well, all year long! There is everything from electric scooters, event tickets and state park passes and more. Check for what qualifies here.
