Sounds like the same type of weather that I have been seeing here for the majority of this winter. And my second time finding what was likely Pluteus cervinus, the first one was a large specimen I failed to get good quality pictures before it deteriorated into a gooey mess.

I have been finding large quantities of these recently, they really like the warm/cool weather we are having now (in my area of the country)
