Oscar Strengthens Into Tropical Storm; No Threat To Land

Oscar Strengthens Into Tropical Storm; No Threat To Land

Oscar will be steered west until Monday when the storm system now impacting the U.S. East Coast blocks its progress.

Forecasters at the Miami-based hurricane center say Oscar has slowed down as it starts to turn north.

Forecasters said Oscar is expected to become a hurricane later Sunday as its track curves toward the North Atlantic. The storm is moving toward the west near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

"Environmental conditions appear conducive for further development and this system will likely become a tropical or subtropical cyclone later today or tonight while it moves generally northward over the central Atlantic".

Tropical Storm Oscar continues to swirl over the Atlantic Ocean, but it does not pose any threat to land.

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

There were no coastal watches or warnings in effect.

If Oscar becomes a hurricane it will be the eighth so far this season, which will come to a close on November 30.
