National Weather Service Celebrates “Pride” As Storm Headed for Florida Enters Gulf

The National Weather Service issued two warnings for Floridians on the first day of Hurricane Season: watch for flooding and mind your pronouns.

MIAMI, FLORIDA — Pride parades and pouring rain are forecasted across Florida this weekend.

Tropical Depression 2 has entered the Gulf of Mexico and is expected to bring heavy rainfall in several parts of the Sunshine State in the coming days.

The National Weather Service issued a flood watch in Miami and Fort Lauderdale, but the state will likely avoid major damage from the storm. At 11 am on Friday, the Weather Channel reported that Tropical Depression 2 is “not expected to last long and is no direct threat to the U.S. Gulf Coast.”

The tax-payer funded government agency also posted a rainbow flag on Thursday – the first day of Hurricane Season and the start of LGBTQ “Pride” month.

While some followers cheered on the tweet, most pointed out that sexual orientation has nothing to do with weather.

“That is certainly not weather related,” one man wrote in response. “Just stick to your job. You dilute your product and its value by pushing this political nonsense.”

“When you can't even check the weather without this woke b.s. being crammed down your throat,” lamented one woman.

Other users mocked the National Weather Service for not accurately projecting the weather on a consistent basis.

Hurricane season runs to the end of November and unsolicited LGBTQ messages are expected to continue through the remainder of June – if not much longer.
