Oscar became a hurricane Sunday night but land isn't threatened, according to the National Hurricane Center.

Oscar, the 15th named storm this season, was about 660 miles southeast of Bermuda and 645 miles northeast of the Northern Leeward Islands, the National Hurricane Center said in its 11 p.m. advisory. It was moving west at 16 mph with maximum sustained winds of 75 mph. Storms become hurricanes at 74 mph.

Oscar became a tropical storm Saturday and was designated the eighth hurricane this season in the 5 p.m. advisory.

No coastal watches of warnings are in effect. Hurricane-force winds extend outward up to 15 miles from the center and tropical-force winds extend outward up to 70 miles.

NHC forecasters say Oscar will continue a westward motion until Tuesday when it will turn north or northeast with an increase in forward speed but diminished strength as it heads away from the United States and Caribbean. Then through the middle of the week, the storm is expected to accelerate quickly toward the northeast and drop to a tropical storm, likely by Thursday night.
