Showers and flooding are possible through Saturday afternoon from Potential Tropical Cyclone 1, which is expected to become a tropical storm.
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. – Runners wishing to participate in Pride Run St. Pete this weekend will have to wait for a later date as it was canceled due to potential showers on Saturday.
“With the status of the tropical storm and its projections, it’s a tough call for us, not knowing for sure how it will affect us here in St. Pete,” Pride Run Series said in a update. “However, we believe it is not worth the risk.”
All eyes are on potential Tropical Cyclone 1 as it continues to develop and move across the southern Gulf of Mexico. 10 Tampa Bay weather forecasters say the biggest threat from this system will be rain, especially in areas south and east of the immediate Bay Area where flooding is possible through Saturday afternoon.

Pride Run Series wants to ensure a fun and enjoyable event and with the forecasted weather it doesn’t look too bright.
The 5K run and walk was scheduled for June 4 at Vinoy Park but will be rescheduled. Pride Run Series will be in contact with those who are already registered for the event. Until a new date is set, registrations are closed.
Although this event has been postponed, there are still more Pride events to look forward to throughout June. Check out Tampa Bay’s 10 St. Pride guide to this year’s 20th anniversary celebration of equality and inclusion.
