A system for drought monitoring and medium–long time forecasting in the Tuscany region (central Italy) is briefly introduced, which is based on ground and satellite data (1km spatial resolution and 16-day temporal resolution). It is also shown how information about current conditions and the future evolution of a drought event is periodically delivered on the LaMMA Consortium website, in collaboration with the Institute of Biometeorology – IBIMET-CNR (now Institute of BioEconomy – IBE-CNR).
