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. "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. However, deadly hurricanes can form anytime during this season.

Oscar is forecast to continue to strengthen through Monday night, then gradually weaken in the open Atlantic.
