The storm's winds have increased to 75 miles per hour, making it a Category 1 hurricane.

At 1100 a.m. AST (1500 UTC), the center of Subtropical Storm Oscar was located near latitude 27.3 north, longitude 48.4 west.

There are no coastal watches or warnings in effect, according to the agency. The storm is continuing to transition from a hybrid storm to a full-fledged tropical system on Saturday night. "After that time, the low is forecast to turn westward and remain well to the north or northeast of the Lesser Antilles through early next week".

Oscar has become the eighth hurricane of the 2018 Atlantic season, but the storm is far out in the Atlantic where it poses no threat to land. "Some strengthening is expected during the next couple of days and Oscar is forecast to become a hurricane later today or tonight".

Hurricane Kate in 1985 formed on November 15 and did $300 million worth of damage and killed 15 people, according to reports.

As of Thursday morning, what is designated as Disturbance 1 was about 900 miles east-northeast of the Caribbean's northern Leeward Islands and still more than 2,000 miles from South Florida.
