TALLAHASSEE, FL (WTXL) -- There is still the only area of interest in the Atlantic Basin, Post-Tropical Cyclone Oscar is continuing to move further into the north Atlantic Ocean.

Post-Tropical Cyclone Oscar is about 1000 miles northeast of Bermuda with sustained winds of 75 mph. This storm is racing toward the north northeast at 35 mph. In the last several hours, this storm has acquired more frontal boundary features, which is why it's now a post-tropical cyclone.

Over the next several days, Oscar will gradually weaken as it continues to move into the northeast Atlantic Ocean, with a gradual decrease in speed later in the week.
