Agree with barcelona and would add that you make sure to keep the meringue in a cool place overnight

Better to put in in a plastic container than wrapped in plastic

And if you live in a humid area like I do, toss a desiccant packet in the plastic container where you are storing the meringue. You can likely find one to borrow in a bottle of vitamins.
