Good Morning!

• We’re expecting a chance of showers and thunderstorms before 9 a.m., after which showers and thunderstorms become more likely up until noon, and then just showers are likely this afternoon, with a high near 70 degrees and a south wind 5 to 8 miles per hour.  Tonight will be mostly cloudy, with a low around 51 degrees. The rest of the week is expected to be sunny, with temperatures in the high 60s Wednesday and Thursday and the low 70s on Friday.

• Voters across the East End go to the polls to elect school boards and vote on school budgets today. On the budget front, none of the local districts are attempting to pierce the state tax levy cap, and school board races are mostly quiet, with notable exceptions in Sag Harbor, Riverhead and Southampton. The Beacon’s full school budget vote guide is online here.

• East Hampton Town agreed in federal court yesterday to wait until after June 8 to begin its new airport noise regulations, giving the judge in a federal lawsuit time to evaluate opponents of the restrictions’ request for a preliminary injunction barring the town from enacting the regulations.

• Of America’s 46 first ladies, nine were born in New York State. Historian Elizabeth Kaplan will discuss the social, political and economic differences between these ladies in an illustrated lecture exploring their lives and legacies at Peconic Landing tonight at 8 p.m. Tickets are available online here:

• The Southold Town Board has a busy morning scheduled at their 9 a.m. work session today. They’re expected to discuss efforts to turn Plum Island into a wildlife preserve and hear updates from their transportation and shellfish advisory committees and their conservation advisory council, and on a request for a living shoreline grant. No public hearings are scheduled for their 4:30 p.m. meeting this afternoon. Their full agenda for both meetings is online here.

• The East Hampton Town Board is expected to discuss airport maintenance and improvement projects, highway business zoning setback requirements and hamlet studies at their 10 a.m. work session at town hall. Their full agenda is online here.

• The Shelter Island Town Board will discuss fireworks, deer hunting permits and a Chamber of Commerce public restroom proposal at their 1 p.m. work session this afternoon. Their full agenda is online here.

And that’s the way things look at dawn’s light today.
