More Humidity! Small Chance of T-Storms

Today has more humidity!
The upside is that there is a limited chance of thunderstorms later today.
If we actually had a thunderstorm that could help break the link of heat and humidity that we have right now.
Stay tuned and watch the skies!

As for the forest, well, things are beautiful out there!
It is prime growing season with the deciduous trees at full growth and various flowering plants and mushrooms cycling along the forest floor.
Head out!
Take a look!
