NOAA issued its outlook for the 2023 Atlantic hurricane season during a news conference at its Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, Maryland.

For the 2023 hurricane season, NOAA is forecasting a likely range of 12 to 17 named storms (winds of 39 mph or higher), of which 5 to 9 could become hurricanes (winds of 74 mph or higher), including 1 to 4 major hurricanes (category 3, 4 or 5; with winds of 111 mph or higher).

Hurricane season officially begins June 1 (although storms have formed before the start of the season) and ends November 30.

Beginning in 2023, the National Hurricane Center time period covered by the outlook will be extended from 5 to 7 days, with both 2-day and 7-day formation probabilities provided.

The Tampa Community Emergency Response Team (CERT) is a program that trains citizens to be prepared for and respond to emergencies that may arise in their community. In the event of a major disaster such as a hurricane, emergency services personnel can initially become overwhelmed leaving citizens on their own. CERT training enables citizens to help themselves and their neighbors by applying basic response and organizational skills during an emergency. CERT members can also serve as first responders to an emergency until professional emergency services arrive. The summer 2023 training session begins on June 7, 2023.
