In this paper we prove the existence of solutions for the 3D Bénard system in the class of functions which are strongly continuous with respect to the second component of the vector (that is, the one corresponding to the parabolic equation). We construct then a multivalued semiflow generated by such solutions and obtain the existence of a global φ −attractor for the weak-strong topology. Moreover, a family of multivalued semiflows is defined on suitable convex bounded subsets of the phase space, proving for them the existence of a global attractor (which is the same for every semiflow of the family) for the weak-strong topology.
