What's the temperature like in Tuscany during January?
January is typically the coolest month in Tuscany. The temperature reaches around 8℃ during the daytime, falling away to 2℃ at night. The UV index will be low at this time of year, so not something to worry about. However, if you're going to be outside for long periods it's always a good idea to apply a small amount of sunscreen to exposed skin.
Does it snow in Tuscany during January?
Possibly. There's a chance of snow during January but not as much as you might think. Check the local forecast before you leave home so that you can pack appropriate footwear and clothing.
Does it rain in Tuscany during January?
On average, there will be 12 rainy days during the month, amounting to 30.7mm in total. That's much drier than we see in England during August, and therefore not something to be concerned about. There's a small chance that you'll catch a thunderstorm during your trip.
