I put in a few miles yesterday walking some woods south of I40 that has gotten some of the largest amounts of rain in the last 30 days and no morels. Lots of big sickly looking elms and ash, perfect looking mushroom ground but the soil was bone dry. Did find a couple of old homesteads that were really cool. Was looking down and walked right up to the edge of an old water well that was easily 25+ feet deep. Spooky.

Morchellica: That is why I opted to save gas/tick bites based on what I saw last week ;) – The models hints at some chances of rain for Central OK – Wed night and Thu night [for some unknown reason, the weather service keeps on maintaining a zero chance for the former - but I believe there is actually chance for Wed night]. My concern is that when the rains come the ground may be already too warm (>62-64F) for morels to fruit in most places. If I am wrong, then they might just come out in mass and it will be a short 2 week season. Warm winters usually are surrogate for below average morel season. Some pubs have also found that warm winters also stems for a delay in the season…Will see what this year brings (if we can just get a quarter of an inch of rain that is !).

I find old home steads about as exciting as finding morels, I know of a guy that found 2 sacks full Saturday but I haven’t got the chance to go look anymore, but may try tonight, iwon how do the rain chances look for thursday night – Friday local channel shows 70% chance

Okie: Given that most of your neck of the woods hasn’t received more than 0.15 inches in the last 10-days, I find it hard to believe that morels could thrive/grow in such a hostile environment. Strangely enough, North Central and NE OK has received decent rains in the last 10 days [0.3-0.7], but very sporadic-to-no reports there…Do you know where [ie, county] this person found them?
To return to your question, your area (Ada, right?) has a good chance of seeing a line of strong storms by Thu night/Friday morning. I’d say that central OK has a 50-50 chance because some models has a line of storms initiating far West, then dissipating, followed by a re – invigoration on Thu night farther East. Basically leapfrogging Central OK. If this happens; I’ll be quite aggravated to say the least …

I spent about five hrs Sunday exporing a large area near Tulsa and found zero signs of morels. However, most every “morelly” looking spot sill had a surprising amount of moisture in the soil and even with it as hot as it was, it still felt cool in the woods. It may be too late for a lot of places but I feel like there is still gonna be a season for NE OK, just need a soaking rain to bring them up. Soil temps have been running a little cooler up here as well and thankfully this is the last hot day, bc a few more days of this and we would be toast for sure.

Morchellica: While some trees are already ahead of schedule, some of those that I usually associate with morels aren’t: E.g., most baby cedars still are ‘sleepy’ or just start to wake up. Most American Elms do not have squirrel-sized leaves yet [most are still seeding]. None of the ‘markers’ near my house have reached their peak yet with the exception of the redbuds in my backyard. Half of my daffodils are either already past or blooming – In a nuthsell, nature seems confused by this wacky weather and I hope that the morels are in the sleepy side of things. I also hope that most spots under cedars will remain cool enough for the next rains to trigger them there. Come on RAIN !!!
