We can expect rain nearly every day (mostly in the afternoon) as we move into our typical summer routine. Hurricane season “officially” starts on Friday, June 1st.
Please take this time to review your personal preparedness plans.
The season will end in November.
We will closely monitor all developments in the Atlantic basin and keep you informed.
We can continue to expect rain throughout the week at Rollins College. We are monitoring developments in the southern Caribbean, however no forecasts have been issued by the National Hurricane Center as of today 5/21. We will update this page if the situation changes.

We can expect heavy rain for the next 5-6 days. There is a small chance (20-30%) that a system in the Gulf of Mexico will develop into a tropical storm, however at this time those chances are diminishing.
We will monitor the entire Atlantic basin throughout the 2018 hurricane system and provide information to the Rollins College community.
