WEATHER ONLY A MUSHROOM COULD LOVE

wildart_062909

It’s got to be among the leading candidates for the official symbol of this damp summer: the literally lowly mushroom.

redbankgreen‘s Accidental Photographer found this one Sunday on Eastview Avenue in Little Silver. Do we have a mycologist among our readers who might identify it for us?

It’s not that the sun hasn’t been out so much as that it doesn’t seem to stay out for long. Today, and for the next few days, the weather forecast calls for a return to conditions associated with proliferating fungi. Which is to say cloudy with a chance of rain or even thunderstorms.

So far, the R word doesn’t appear in the forecast for Friday, when Red Bank hosts its annual jumbo spectacular known as the Kaboom Fireworks on the Navesink. And the Independence Day weekend is looking pretty nice.

Here’s the National Weather Service outlook.

Today: A slight chance of showers, then a chance of showers and thunderstorms after noon. Mostly cloudy, with a high near 82. South wind between 5 and 10 mph. Chance of precipitation is 50%.
