Subtropical Storm Oscar Bermuda Oct 27 2018 BWS

This tropical disturbance will likely become the next named storm in the Atlantic

Tropical Storm Oscar has been upgraded to a hurricane in the central Atlantic. A gradual weakening trend is forecast to begin tonight.

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

At 500 a.m. AST (0900 UTC), the center of Hurricane Oscar was located near latitude 28.6 north, longitude 58.2 west. Oscar is moving toward the north near 13 miles per hour (20 km/h).

The system ended up becoming a category 1 hurricane three days later and eventually produced wild autumn weather, including some flooding, in Ireland and Wales, though it didn't directly affect any landmass.

There is a new low-pressure system, centered about 1,200 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands in the central Atlantic.

Oscar strengthened into a tropical storm late Saturday over open waters.

"These storms can be troublesome for eastern Cuba, the Bahama, and Bermuda. After that time, the low is forecast to turn westward and remain well to the north or northeast of the Lesser Antilles through early next week".
