Tropical Storm Nicholas became a brief CAT 1 hurricane as it made landfall earlier this morning along the upper Texas coast, just southwest of Houston. Winds reached 75mph.
Nicholas is now a strong tropical storm with wind at 70mph as of 4:00 a.m. this morning. It's moving very slowly to the northeast and will continue doing so through the day.

Nicholas is a very lopsided storm with all the precipitation on the north and east side of the center of circulation. The flooding rains will stay out of Houston, but will inundate Beaumont/Port Arthur into southwest Louisiana through the day.
We may see a few afternoon and evening showers and storms across DFW later today, but they will quickly wane after sunset.
