At 1100 a.m. AST (1500 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Oscar was located near latitude 27.3 north, longitude 48.4 west.

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

Oscar already packs sustained winds around 60 miles per hour.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered Monday morning about 590 miles (955 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda, with top sustained winds of about 85 mph (140 kph).

The Atlantic hurricane season typically peaks in September and October, but major storms do sometimes form in November. The hurricane is forecast to accelerate toward the north-northeast or northeast during the next couple of days.

Oscar has become the eighth hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, but the storm is far out in the Atlantic where it poses no threat to land.

No coastal watches of warnings are in effect. "Near or just beyond 96 hours, the shear is forecast to increase substantially and Oscar should begin to make the transition to an extratropical cyclone".
