SATURDAY EVENING 5 PM UPDATE 10/27/18
Oscar will make the full transition into a tropical storm tonight or Sunday and will strengthen to a hurricane by mid-week. It will NOT be a threat to any land areas as it ejects into the North Atlantic late next week. 

FRIDAY NIGHT 11 PM UPDATE 10/26/18
We have a new Subtropical storm in the Atlantic. Subtropical Storm Oscar formed Friday night and will meander in the Atlantic for a few days. It will not be a threat to land and will likely remain at tropical storm strength through the week.
