Oscar is still moving toward the west at 16 miles per hour.

A cyclone is a closed-circulation rotating storm that depending on its wind-speed intensity is classified, from weakest to strongest, as a tropical depression, tropical storm or hurricane.

Under the heading Hazards Affecting Land, the hurricane center said: "None".

The storm is expected to turn westward at that time, the forecast said, well to the north or northeast of the Lesser Antilles through early next week.

The global models have come into much better agreement on Oscar's eventual recurvature and acceleration, and confidence in the NHC track forecast has increased.
