Subtropical Storm Oscar Bermuda Oct 27 2018 BWS

NOAA's National Hurricane Center issued a Public Advisory at 5 a.m. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday morning that Oscar was centred about 1,040 miles (1,675 kilometres) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west at 13 mph (20 kph).

Tropical Storm Oscar could become a hurricane later today.

Oscar is forecast to continue to strengthen through Monday night, then gradually weaken in the open Atlantic.

The storm is moving north at 13 miles per hour.

Thankfully the track of Oscar keeps it away from land in the coming days.

The new NHC track forecast is much faster than the previous one at the end of the forecast period, jumping northward by about 10 degrees of latitude.

The storm had top sustained winds of 60 miles per hour (95 kph).

Additional strengthening is expected, and Oscar could become a hurricane after transitioning to a tropical storm later this weekend or early next week.

The system that became Hurricane Kate formed southeast of the Bahamas on November 8, 2015, noted the WeatherBug blog.
