5 College Sophomore

Weather: It is nice 90% of the time. There is usually sun and it hardly stays cold for long. The summers a little bit much, but if you hate the cold you'll love it.

3 College Sophomore

Weather: It's Florida. And Lakeland. Weather is great but it could rain any day. Most of the time students are outside but if it does rain we find things to do inside, like go to the wellness center and play sports

5 College Freshman

Weather: The weather most of the time is really great! Even on the rare occasion of a rainy day, the experience is still wonderful.

5 College Freshman

Weather: I love the warm. This is florida so there's a lot of rain but overall the warm outweighs it as far as good vs bad for me.

5 College Freshman

Weather: There is sunshine, everyday, and it's beautiful. Sometimes I do miss the seasons, though.

Student Author OverviewWhat's This?

Be ready for warm weather when considering Florida Southern College. You can expect typical Florida weather from about May to October. This includes warm mornings that turn into hot temperatures around mid-day, then rain in the afternoon to cool things down. Don't worry, though! The rain lasts for maybe an hour at the most. Then, there are clear skies for a moderately warm night. Because of all the rain, expect very humid summer days.

The temperatures start to drop around October, but there is the chance that it won't get cold until December. During the winter, the weather is chilly, but not nearly as cold as other parts of the United States. Don't expect any chance of snow, but there are the occasional dips into the 20s at night. Starting in June and ending in November, hurricane season does have the possibility of affecting Florida Southern College. Depending on the strength of the storm, the weather can range from days of light rainfall and clouds to heavy rainfall and high velocity winds. There are not very noticeable weather changes from season to season generally in Florida. However, the further north you are, the colder the winters. Similarly, the further south you are, the warmer the summers.
