A ‘White Christmas’ in Florence?

A ‘White Christmas’ in Florence?

Light snow was falling in the Florence area again this morning, but it wasn’t nearly as bad as last week when snow, heavy rains and flooding wreaked havoc on planes and rail lines in Tuscany. As many as 14 flights were diverted last Tuesday from Florence's Peretola airport due to heavy rains causing poor visibility, an airport spokesman said. Those same heavy rains also disrupted rail travel around Lucca, stretching as far as Florence and affecting trains around Pisa and the seaside town of Viareggio. However, a ‘White Christmas’ looks increasingly unlikely with rain and higher temperatures forecast from this evening onwards.  - Luxury Italian Cashmere, Bedding & Bath Linen
