    Howdie Okie Shroom Hunter et al.:
    Despite the total accum precip being slightly below average in Central OK over the last 3 months, I've observed/noticed that the upper soil layers under foliage has been wet/moist since ~mid November. If this trend continues until early March, I predict a heck of a season for our neck of the woods (so to speak). Cheers, happy hunting to 'y'all' & bring on the hard rains (To quote Dylan).

    Hmm according to the California message board they found Morels in southern CA in December, and the 2015 Morel progression map on morelhunters.c shows there have also been finds in California in January. Maybe it will be an early year for us. Just hoping.. I have no idea what the weather will decide to do in early March, but I bet we will start seeing more reports of CA or Hawaii or some of the warmer states soon.

    What they're finding in Cal. are called Landscape Morels and will fruit any time of the year. ( Morchella rufobrunnea )

    Oh cool. I knew they were landscaping Morels, but I didn't know they grew year round. I thought they started in December or January and lasted through the regular morel season. I thought I read that somewhere before, but maybe not. Thanks for the info.

    I live in Norman and was introduced to Morels when a co-worker brought in some he had prepared. I was immediately hooked. That was the last time I had the pleasure of trying them. This was 4 years ago. There were promises of taking me along when he would go looking each year but it appears that hunting locales are best kept secret. :) I have access to 10 fairly wooded acres that border lake thunder bird but I am not clear when or where to look for morels. Any pointers regarding my initial quest would be greatly appreciated!

    Mushroom expert dot com is the best web site for information about mushrooms. Go to his site. He has a search engine. Type in morels and start reading. Type in trees and start reading. That site can keep you busy for a long time.

    Didn't know that about the landscaping morels jack I was like Nate and thought they just grew during the regular season guess ill have to read up about them more.

    Drove around Ada today and noticed the Bradford pears are starting to bud but that might be do to micro climate. With the temps like they are it makes me feel like I should be out looking even though I know its way to early.

    ground temps are warmer than usual this year, if we get some moisture I'm guessing we might get an early start, and possibly have one of those long seasons if it doesn't get too warm.

    Yep, soil temps have been unusually warm lately:

    http://www.mesonet.org/index.php/weather/soil_temperature/okcn/7d

    However, an arctic airmass is forecast to sag all the way down to the Gulf coast early next week, bringing icy precip, perhaps some snow and, most importantly, lows in the lower teens - Good news, though, is that models are hinting for 2 subsequent rounds of precip. The more precip we get, the better; to maintain that soil moist under those leaves!

    Models and NOAA climatic outlooks:

    http://www.cpc.ncep.noaa.gov/

    support colder-than-average temps and a wetter-than-average scenario for the next 14 days. Given this, I wouldn't be surprised if, once again, the morel 'shroom' season in central OK would start kicking on the 2nd third of March-Have been browsing through my morel photos & videos the last 2 weeks (total of ~4000 morel finds in 2 seasons --> $0 made and many happy bellies :) ) and cannot wait to hit the woods ! One of my easy, productive spots (close to work) has been bulldozed to build a gas station...Boo.
    Good luck to y'all and wishing you a fruitful foraging season !
