Oscar already packs sustained winds around 60 miles per hour. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday night that the storm was centered about 930 miles east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west-southwest at 20 mph. It is expected to turn towards the northwest on Monday and may rush across the north-central Atlantic by the middle of the week.

At 500 a.m. AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located near latitude 28.6 north, longitude 58.2 west. Oscar is moving toward the north near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

According to the National Hurricane Center, additional strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and Oscar is expected to make a transition to a tropical storm on Sunday.

Oscar became a named system late Friday evening as a subtropical storm.

Tropical Storm Oscar continues to swirl over the Atlantic Ocean, but it does not pose any threat to land.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

Hurricane Oscar is now the eighth hurricane in the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.
