In the tropics, Nicholas reached hurricane strength just before landfall in Texas overnight.  Having weakened to a tropical storm at 5 am, Nicholas was then located near 29.3 North, 95.6 West, about 30 miles south-southwest of Houston, Texas.  Maximum sustained winds were 70 miles per hour, and Nicholas was moving north-northeast at 9 miles per hour..  A tropical storm warning is in effect from Matagorda, Texas to Cameron, Louisiana.  Nicholas will bring damaging winds and flooding rains to portions of Texas and Louisiana today into Wednesday.

Elsewhere, the low a couple of hundred miles east of the Bahamas has a medium chance of developing into a depression during the next five days as it moves to the northwest and then northeast.  A wave in the far eastern Atlantic has a high chance of becoming a depression during the next five days.
