COASTAL SECTIONS OF THE ISLANDS OVERNIGHT AND BY EARLY MORNING.  
MOSTLY SUNNY AND HAZY CONDITIONS ARE FORECAST TO CONTINUE ON

ACROSS THE REGIONAL WATERS, SEAS ARE EXPECTED TO RANGE BETWEEN 5  
TO 7 FEET OVERNIGHT. SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL CONTINUE FOR THE

RIP CURRENTS CONTINUES FOR MOST OF THE BEACHES OF THE U.S. VIRGIN
