Good Morning!

• There was a freeze warning in effect across the East End last night. Hopefully you haven’t planted anything that’s not cold-hardy out there yet! Today will be mostly sunny, with a high near 44 but wind chill values between 10 and 20 early. We’ll see a northeast wind 5 to 10 mph becoming south 11 to 16 mph in the afternoon. There’s a 30 percent chance of showers overnight tonight, when we’re expecting the temperature to rise to 46 degrees by 2 a.m. We’re expecting fog and rain tomorrow, with a high near 60 and new precipitation between three quarters and one inch. Friday will be partly sunny, with a high near 49 and a 20 percent chance of morning showers.

• After about nine months gestating a report on alternatives to help control the tick population on the North Fork, Southold’s Tick Working Group has come to the same conclusion as the town board had before them: education and culling of the North Fork’s growing deer herd are the best solutions to the problem. The Beacon’s full report is online here.
