If the forecast holds, Oscar would be the 8th Atlantic hurricane of 2018.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered Monday morning about 620 miles (1,000 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda, with top sustained winds of about 80 mph (130 kph). "After that time, the system is forecast to turn westward well to the north or northeast of the Lesser Antilles through early next week".

Oscar is the 15th named storm of the six-month Atlantic hurricane season that ends November 30. It was moving southwest at 12 miles per hour with maximum sustained winds of 70 miles per hour.

Oscar became the eighth hurricane of the Atlantic season on Sunday, but forecasters said it posed no threat to land, although Bermuda residents were told to expect rough seas in the days ahead.

But now a new low pressure system, centered about 900 miles east-northeast of the northern Leeward Islands in the central Atlantic, "is gradually becoming better defined", according to the National Hurricane Center.

Forecasters said Oscar was developing a warmer core, indicating it would transition soon to a tropical storm.

The Atlantic hurricane season typically peaks in September and October, but major storms do sometimes form in November.
