Oscar forms, strengthens in Central Atlantic Ocean

Subtropical Storm Oscar forms in Atlantic The 15th named storm of the 2018 Atlantic hurricane season is moving across the middle of the ocean

Oscar is still moving toward the west at 16 miles per hour.

Forecasters expect Oscar to become a hurricane later Sunday as its track curves toward the North Atlantic.

The Atlantic hurricane season runs from June 1 to November 30 each year, while the Eastern Pacific hurricane season runs from May 15 to November 30, the center said.

The storm had top sustained winds of 70 miles per hour (110 kph).

Oscar became a tropical storm Saturday and was designated the eighth hurricane this season.

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. Hurricane season runs through November 30.

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.
