Wait until the bushes and shrubs and small plants start to grow leaves and possibly trees. The flora needs to be active too for it to happen. I've seen warm ups before and the plants didnt respond and morels didnt show up until plants started growing and there were leaves starting.
It has something to do with the duration of sunlight exposure for the plants too.
Something the plants do signals to the morels that the season has officially changed.
