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.
