In the IR10.8 temperature from the Meteosat-10, calculated over 39 hours, the blue areas clearly show persistent cold cloudiness that extended northeast-ward starting from the coast near Elba. Cold cloud tops indicate high cloud tops which are usually associated with heavy rainfall.
It was reported that some areas had more than 194 mm of rain; two people were still missing from Massa Marittima, after their car was caught in flood waters, and 23 people were evacuated in Braccagni. The flooding took place almost a year after torrential rain caused serious flooding in the same areas, killing four people.
