Hurricane Oscar continues to strengthen in the central Atlantic Ocean and will likely reach category two status in the next 24 hours. Maximum sustained winds are currently at 85 mph, with the storm forecast to increase to near 105 mph. The cyclone is 590 miles southeast of Bermuda and is not expected to be a threat to any land areas. Movement is to the west-northwest at 7 mph,  but a northwest and northeastward movement is expected into Tuesday. Oscar is moving around the western edge of a ridge and a strong trough is now moving through the eastern Atlantic. This will push the storm to the north and northeast. As Oscar moves into the northern Atlantic, the cyclone will decrease as it pushes across colder sea surface temperatures and strong upper-level wind shear produced by the approaching trough.
