The National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. Friday advisory said the system has changed little in organization since Thursday night.

The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered Monday morning about 590 miles (955 kilometers) southeast of Bermuda, with top sustained winds of about 85 mph (140 kph).

Tropical Storm Oscar continues to swirl over the Atlantic Ocean, but it does not pose any threat to land. "After that time, the system is forecast to turn westward well to the north or northeast of the Lesser Antilles through early next week".

The new NHC track forecast is much faster than the previous one at the end of the forecast period, jumping northward by about 10 degrees of latitude.

Tropical Storm Oscar became Hurricane Oscar, officials with the National Hurricane Center said on October 28.

Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts.

Oscar has transitioned from a subtropical storm into a tropical storm and now may become a hurricane soon.
