making meringues on a humid day

Against my better judgement, I've been roped into making meringues today. It is very humid. Anyone have any advice on how to get decent results on a humid day?

Thanks! That was some really great info on making meringues! I ended up baking them a lot longer and raising the oven termperature. They're cooling in the oven now. Hopefully they came out well. Otherwise, I have the yolks in the fridge and can whip up some custard!

One of the answers on the link I sent came from Shuna, the Pastry Chef at Peels Restaurant in NYC and author of the acclaimed blog Eggbeater. Another helpful answer was from boulangere.

There was a question asked about meringues a while back and had some great answers http://www.food52.com/foodpickle/5890-how-do-i-make-the-perfect-meringue

My understanding of humidity and meringues is they will need to be baked longer.

Thank you for allowing yourself to be roped in! Some people are in for a treat.
