Tropical Storm Nicholas will continue to produce heavy rain for Texas and Louisiana with rain chances increasing in metro Atlanta later this week.

Latest

Nicholas made landfall as a hurricane about 10 miles southwest of Sargent Beach, Texas, at 1:30 a.m. ET.

Forecast

Nicholas will weaken to a tropical depression as it moves over east Texas and Louisiana, bringing heavy rain and the potential of flash flooding to both states.

Impact on north Georgia

There will be no direct impact from Nicholas in north Georgia. However moisture from Nicholas will move into Georgia for the second half of the week and add to rain chances that were already forecast for metro Atlanta, starting Wednesday.
