MIDWAY, Fla. (WTXL) -- Hurricane Oscar is moving in a northerly fashion while located 550 miles southeast of Bermuda. The hurricane will remain over the open Atlantic Ocean throughout its life span as a tropical cyclone. It will accelerate to the northeast later this week, strengthening to a Category 2 hurricane, before entering a post-tropical phase over the colder North Atlantic region.

Despite a number of moisture waves elsewhere in the basin, no other systems are forecast to develop in the near-term future.  The Gulf and the western Caribbean are quite settled and quiet.
