Tropical-storm-force winds extend outward up to 115 miles from the center.

Hurricane Oscar has gained strength in the Atlantic Ocean and should get even stronger, forecasters said Monday.

But the expected track of the storm has it going further out to sea and not affecting the United States nor any other landmass.

Currently, Oscar is located more than 1,800 miles east of Jacksonville and is moving toward the west-northwest near 12 mph. Additional strengthening is possible as well due to the warm waters and low wind shear directly above the storm.

The Atlantic hurricane season typically peaks in September and October, but major storms do sometimes form in November.
