Subtropical Storm Oscar 2018 Spaghetti Models

Oscar became the eighth hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season Sunday but was far out in the Atlantic and posing no threat to land. The National Hurricane Center in Miami said Saturday night that the storm was centered about 930 miles east-southeast of Bermuda, and it was moving west-southwest at 20 mph.

Hurricane season in the Atlantic Ocean usually starts from the month of June and lasts till November 30.

Forecasters expect Oscar to transition to a tropical storm by early next week. Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm.
