Good Morning!

• The National Weather Service “will hold off any headlines at this time” regarding the stormy weather we’re expecting tomorrow night, as of their latest report at 3:30 a.m. They’re expecting snow and rain with possible accumulations up to six inches beginning midnight Wednesday and continuing through the day Thursday, depending on whether the temperature here is above freezing or not. Keep tuned to their updates from Upton here.

• The Riverhead and Sag Harbor school districts have already overspent their built-in snow day budgets and will hold classes on April 14, the Monday that had been at the beginning of spring break. Many other districts will have to shorten school breaks if they have to cancel any more school days this winter. We’ll keep you updated on any other changes to the vacation schedule.

Most East End town boards are going to have a busy day today:

Tonight at 7:30 p.m., they’re scheduled to vote on a zoning change that would allow the construction of a cell phone tower behind town hall. Their agenda for both meetings is online here.

• The Southampton Town Board is busy with former Hampton Bays nightclubs today. They  will hold public hearings on creating a planned development district for a project to revamp the Canoe Place Inn and build condos across the canal, and on designating the Neptune Beach Club on Dune Road a historic landmark at their 1 p.m. meeting. Their agenda is online here.

• The East Hampton Town Board holds its work session at the Montauk Firehouse at 10 a.m. today. They’ll be discussing the annual police report and requests for proposals for peak electric generation. Their agenda is online here.
