Snow in the Hills Above Florence

Residents of Florence woke up on the weekend of February 3-4 to find more than a dusting of snow on the hills and countryside above the city.  There was accumulation in Fiesole, Pratolino, the Mugello Valley, Vallombrosa, Consuma and the Colla and Futa mountain passes.  The weather alert will continue through Sunday.
