Abstract. 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 (1 km spatial resolution and 16-day temporal resolution). It is also shown how information about current conditions and future evolution of a drought event is periodically delivered on the LaMMA Consortium website, in collaboration with the Institute of Biometeorology (IBIMET-CNR).
