Slight increase in cyanobacterial observations in lakes, Storm Vieno curbed the growth of cyanobacteria in sea areas

In lakes, more cyanobacterial observations have been made than during the previous week, but the observed amounts of cyanobacteria have been small. In sea areas, the cyanobacterial situation is still calm. Storm Vieno early in the week caused sea surface temperatures to drop considerably from last week. In some places, there may still be yellow pine pollen on coastal waters that looks deceptively like cyanobacterial blooms.
