What's the next hurricane? Storm system could become Oscar

Forecasters said Oscar will move west until Tuesday and then turn north, with an increase in forward speed but diminished strength as it heads away from the United States and Caribbean. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday afternoon that Oscar was centered about 925 miles (1,485 kilometers) east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west at 17 mph (28 kph).

Hurricane Oscar is now the eighth hurricane in the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season.

The storm was moving to the west at 12 miles per hour (19 kph).

Under the heading Hazards Affecting Land, the hurricane center said: "None".

Systems have a better chance of surviving and developing in the locations because water temperatures haven't cooled off below the 80 degrees Fahrenheit threshold storms need to form and grow, and wind shear often remains low in November.

Additional strengthening is expected, and Oscar could become a hurricane after transitioning to a tropical storm later this weekend or early next week. Hurricane season runs through November 30.

Oscar became a named system late Friday evening as a subtropical storm.
