For the most part, Boca Raton weather is hot and balmy—so bring your tank tops, flip-flops, and short-shorts. However, the South Florida area is also susceptible to tropical storms and hurricanes, so students should also be prepared for that extreme. Rain coats, umbrellas, and rain boots are encouraged (although sometimes they won't do much to protect you when the weather gets really bad with strong winds and floods).
There's a link on the FAU Web site to weather updates and warnings. If students are concerned about whether classes or canceled or not, they can check out the site for updates.
