The National Hurricane Center expects Nicholas to make landfall along the middle Texas coast as soon as Monday night, as depicted by the forecast path in the map below.

Nicholas should be at least a strong tropical storm when it makes landfall. It's possible that Nicholas becomes a Category 1 hurricane just prior to moving inland. That's why a hurricane watch is now in effect for a part of the middle Texas coastline. Currently, Nicholas has sustained winds at 60 MPH and is a flooding threat for the Crossroads area.
