Tracking the Tropics: Oscar forms, could become a hurricane

According to the National Hurricane Center, additional strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and Oscar is expected to make a transition to a tropical storm on Sunday.

The storm's winds have increased to 75 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 hurricane.

But Oscar is no threat to the US and was deep in the Atlantic as of Sunday morning.

"By Tuesday, Oscar is forecast to begin moving to the north or northeast with an increase in forward speed".

Oscar is the 15th named storm of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that ends November 30. Regardless of strength, Hurricane Oscar is not expected to be a threat to land. The minimum central pressure has dropped to 989 mb.

Tropical Storm Oscar could become a hurricane later today. "Winds of 40 mph or greater extend outward up to 115 miles [185 km] from the center". It will weaken and become a powerful extratropical low over the north-central Atlantic by late Wednesday, forecasters said.

It's too soon to say with certainty whether the system will affect the U.S.
