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

NHC forecasters say that a westward to west-southwestward motion with an increase in forward speed is expected today and tonight, followed by a reduction in speed on Sunday.

The storm was moving to the west at 12 miles per hour (19 kph).

The National Hurricane Center's 8 a.m. Friday advisory said the system has changed little in organization since Thursday night. Oscar will be steered west until Monday when the storm system now impacting the U.S. East Coast blocks its progress.

Tropical Storm Oscar has been upgraded to a hurricane in the central Atlantic.

Subtropical storms have less defined and cooler centres than tropical storms. Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm.

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