Hurricane Oscar gains strength but still no threat to land

National Hurricane Center Subtropical Storm Oscar 2018 Projected Path

Additional strengthening is forecast during the next several days, and Oscar is expected to make a transition to a tropical storm on Sunday.

Tropical Storm Oscar could become a hurricane later today. A gradual weakening trend is forecast to begin tonight.

The Bermuda Weather Service said the storm was moving west at about 19.5 mph with winds of more than 64 mph and gusts of 79 mph.

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

Oscar is the eighth hurricane of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that ends November 30.

Hope, who registered his second ODI ton, kept chipping away despite some tight bowling by the Indian pacemen and Holder´s run out. The spinner then bowled seasoned Marlon Samuels (13) to leave the visitors in a spot of bother at 78 for three in 12 overs.

At this time, there is still only one area of interest in the Atlantic Basin.

Seven named storms became hurricanes this season.

There is a new low-pressure system, centered about 1,200 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands in the central Atlantic. By Tuesday, the storm is expected to start speeding north-northeast over open waters.

"These storms can be troublesome for eastern Cuba, the Bahama, and Bermuda".

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