533 PM AST SUN NOV 23 2014

SUNNY TO PARTLY CLOUDY SKIES PREVAILED ACROSS THE U.S. VIRGIN ISLANDS
AND THE SURROUNDING WATERS THIS AFTERNOON. THE DOPPLER WEATHER
RADAR DETECTED ONLY ISOLATED PASSING SHOWERS ACROSS THE REGION

ACROSS THE REGION TODAY. WINDS WERE FROM THE EAST AT 15 TO 20 MPH

PATCHES OF MOISTURE PRODUCING ISOLATED SHOWERS OVER THE LOCAL
ISLANDS DURING THE OVERNIGHT AND EARLY MORNING HOURS.

ACROSS THE COASTAL WATERS...SMALL CRAFT ADVISORIES WILL CONTINUE
IN EFFECT FOR MOST OF THE REGIONAL WATERS DUE TO SEAS UP TO 8
FEET AND EASTERLY TRADE WINDS UP TO 22 KNOTS. THESE CONDITIONS
WILL CONTINUE THROUGH AT LEAST MIDWEEK.
