The wave of bad weather continues on northern Italy, which according to Coldiretti has already caused

millions of euros in damage

in the countryside.

In Tuscany unstable weather conditions are expected due to cold air infiltrations, with possible thunderstorms that today will affect the Tuscan-Emilian Apennines, while from tomorrow afternoon, and until the early hours of the evening, they may become strong also in the inland areas of the region.

For this reason, the Operations Room of the Regional Civil Protection has issued a

yellow code

for severe thunderstorms valid from 12 to 20 tomorrow, Wednesday 6 July, for the whole of Tuscany with the exception of the coastal strip up to Versilia.
