Sub-Tropical Storm Oscar has maximum sustained winds of 50 miles per hour (85 km/h), with higher gusts. Oscar will be steered west until Monday when the storm system now impacting the U.S. East Coast blocks its progress. "On a rare occasion, storms that form near the Central America coast can track north into the Gulf of Mexico and turn to the northeast toward Florida", it stated.

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

Winds of 40 mph extend outward up to 195 miles (315 km) from the center. The minimum central pressure has dropped to 989 mb.

A front is still on track to push Oscar early this week and turn it quickly northeast before even reaching Bermuda.
