  • Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic

Hurricane Oscar has gained strength in the Atlantic Ocean and should get even stronger, forecasters said Monday.

The Tropical Storm Oscar has got upgraded into a Category 1 hurricane with maximum sustained winds of 120 kmph. Oscar is moving to the west at 16 miles per hour. As of 10 p.m., the National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered some 660 miles southeast of Bermuda and 645 miles northeast of the northern Leeward Islands and moving west at 16 mph.

NHC forecasters say that a westward to west-southwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected today and tonight, followed by a reduction in speed on Sunday.

It is this hurricane season's 15th named storm.

The storm is continuing to transition from a hybrid storm to a full-fledged tropical system on Saturday night.

A front is still on track to push Oscar early this week and turn it quickly northeast before even reaching Bermuda.

The storm had top sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 kph).

The Atlantic hurricane season typically peaks in September and October, but major storms do sometimes form in November.
