Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic

Oscar is the 15th named storm of the 2018 Atlantic Hurricane Season. Additional strengthening is expected, and Oscar could become a hurricane after transitioning to a tropical storm later this weekend or early next week.

TS Oscar was said to be about 927 miles east south east of Bermuda at midnight. This storm is about 730 miles southeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 75 mph.

The National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. Friday advisory said the system has changed little in organization since Thursday night.

Oscar strengthened into a tropical storm late on October 27 over open waters and is centered 815 miles east-southeast of Bermuda and 780 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands, the NHC said.

Forecasters at the Miami-based hurricane center say Oscar "is expected to accelerate quickly toward the northeast through the middle of the week".

The storm does not pose a threat to Florida or the U.S.
