Atlantic Hurricane Oscar moving westward: NHC”

Oscar is expected to become a powerful extratropical low over the north-central Atlantic by late Wednesday.

The storm does not pose threat to Florida, U.S. Oscar is still moving toward the west at 16 miles per hour. The Atlantic hurricane season ends on November 30, but it usually peaks on September 10-11.

The Bermuda Weather Service said the storm was moving west at about 19.5 mph with winds of more than 64 mph and gusts of 79 mph.

The storm's winds have increased to 75 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 hurricane.

Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles (30 km) from the center and tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles (110 km). Additional strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and Oscar is expected to make a transition to a tropical storm on Sunday. The storm is located well northeast of Puerto Rico and well southeast of Bermuda in the open ocean.

Oscar has transitioned from a subtropical storm into a tropical storm and now may become a hurricane soon.

A sub-tropical storm in the Atlantic was tonight upgraded to a storm.
