Hurricane Oscar Forms in Atlantic Ocean as Track Forecast Updated

  • Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered Sunday afternoon about 725 miles (1,165 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda and had top sustained winds of about 75 mph (120 kph). Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles, the NHC said.

Tropical Storm Oscar continues to swirl in the Atlantic Ocean, but does not pose a threat to land.

Sub-Tropical Storm Oscar has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 km/h), with higher gusts.

The system that became Hurricane Kate formed southeast of the Bahamas on November 8, 2015, noted the WeatherBug blog. By Tuesday, the storm is expected to be speeding north-northeast over open waters. Meteorologists, though, said they do not expect Oscar to threaten the United States, or any land.


Subtropical storms have less defined and cooler centers than tropical storms.

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

Forecasters said Oscar was developing a warmer core, indicating it would transition soon to a tropical storm.
