Good Morning!

• We’re expecting sunny skies today, with a high temperature near 48 degrees and a calm wind. It will be mostly cloudy overnight, with a low around 37. We’re expecting showers and wind on Wednesday, mostly after 1 p.m., with a high near 60 and a south wind increasing throughout the day to 18 to 28 miles per hour, with gusts as high as 43. Thursday will be sunny and breezy, with a high near 45.

• The Southold Town Board will hear presentations on North Fork Audubon’s Shorebird Monitoring program, upgrades to the town’s Human Resource Center in Mattituck, amendments to the town code regarding accessory apartments, adding uses to agricultural development rights easements and a request from the town’s Transportation Commission for electric vehicle charging stations in municipal lots, as well as on federal funding for non-profits at its 9 a.m. work session this morning, which will be held at the Peconic Lane Community Center. The board has two public hearings slated for its 7 p.m. regular meeting at Town Hall — on adding updates from the New York State fire code to the town code, and on a proposed prohibition on parking at the end of Duck Pond Road on the Long Island Sound in Cutchogue. Here’s the agenda for both meetings, here’s the Zoom login for the work session, and here’s the Zoom login for the evening meeting. Both meetings are also open to the public.

• Riverhead Town announced over the weekend that it is officially in contract to buy the Second Street offices of Peconic Bay Medical Center (the former Suffolk County National Bank headquarters) for use as a new town hall. That project has been in the works since August.
