Oscar will be steered west until Monday when the storm system now impacting the U.S. East Coast blocks its progress.
A sub-tropical storm in the Atlantic was tonight upgraded to a storm.
Maximum sustained winds have increased to near 60 miles per hour (95 km/h) with higher gusts. Meteorologists, though, said they do not expect Oscar to threaten the United States, or any land.
Tthe Bermuda Weather Service said "moderate to strong winds and large swell at beaches are expected ton Tuesday as Hurricane Oscar passes to the distant east".
But Tropical Storm Oscar, earlier said to be a potential threat to Bermuda, had altered track and was no longer viewed as a danger. There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect. The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Oscar was centered Monday morning... Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm.
By the middle of the week, the storm is expected to accelerate quickly toward the northeast and will weaken to a tropical storm by Thursday night.
