Multi-colored slime fungus on a fallen tree along Fargo Brook

Morning Observation:

This morning in Huntington at 7:55AM it’s currently a blustery 46 degrees under mostly cloudy skies. Winds are out of the south at 5-8 mph. Relative humidity is 79%, dewpoint 40, barometric pressure 29.84” and rising. We picked up a 0.01” trace of rain in the past 25hrs. Yesterday’s high was 43, and the overnight low was 38.

Forecast:

Low pressure centered just east of James Bay and its associated cold front will move northeast and away from the region today leaving breezy conditions in its wake. Any scattered rain and higher elevation snow showers will come to an end this morning. A ridge of high pressure will then build into the region with fair and dry weather expected through the upcoming week.

We’ll see partly sunny skies today with a 30% chance of rain showers this morning. Highs will be in the mid 40s with southwest winds around 15 mph and gusting up to 25 mph, becoming westerly this afternoon. Tonight should be mostly clear with lows around 19 and northwest winds around 10 mph.

Monday should be mostly sunny and seasonably cool with highs in the lower 30s and northwest winds around 10 mph. Monday night should be partly cloudy with lows around 19 and northwest winds around 10 mph.

Tuesday should be partly sunny with highs in the mid 30s and light and variable winds. Tuesday night should be partly cloudy with lows in the upper 20s.

About Today’s Photo:

My eye was drawn to this collection of multi-colored slime fungus on a fallen tree along Fargo Brook. The individual heads are now bigger than the head of a pin, but the color pops from its muted surroundings.
