Tropical Storm Nicholas forms, expected to bring heavy rain to Gulf Coast

HAS THEIR TARPSP U ALREADY. WE ARE TRACKGIN A LOT IN THE TROPICS, BUT OUR SIGHTS ARE SET ON NICHOLAS. SO WE DO HEAV A TROPICAL STORM NOW IN THE GULF YOU CAN SEE THAT WE ARE NOTHE T CONE BUT WE’RE STILL GOING TO SEE RAIN OUT OF THIS. SO TROPICAL STORM. NI TROPICAL STORM. CHOLAS IS MOVING NORTH-NORTHWEST AT 14 MILESN A HOUR. IT HAS SUSTAINED WINDS OF 40 MILES AN HOUR. NOW, THERE’S TWO SCENARIOS THAT WE COULD SEE OUT OF THIS. OF COURSE, WE WATCH THESE MODELS CLOSELY AND I LIKE TO SHOW YOU THEM. THIS IS THE EUROPEAN MODEL. IT’S A GLOBAL MODEL FAIRLY RELIABLE. IT SHOWS NICHOLAS MOVING NORTH SLOWLY AND TNHE MAKING LANDFALL IN TEXAS AND THEN SOMEATWH CALLING SO IT WOULD STILL BRING RAIN TO US. IT WOULD BE A REALLY BAD SCENARIO FOR PLACES LIKE HOUSTON AND GALVESTONT I WOULD DUMP A LOT OF RAIN OVER THEM. BUT THIS IS THE OTHER MODEL THE EUROPE. EXCUSE ME, THE AMERICAN MODEL. IT’S THE GFS MODEL. IT HAS BEEN REALLY RELIABLE THIS SEASON. IT SHOWS THIS MOVING NTHOR MAKING LANDFALL, BUT THEN TURNING EAST QUICKLY AND THAT’S A WORST OUT. THAT’S A WORSE OUTCOME FOR US. THAT WOULD BRING US EVEN MORE RAIN. TO OUR AREA THROUGH MIDWEEK EVEN INTO THURSDAY. SO HERE’S A LOOK AT RAINFALL OVER THE NEXT SEVEN DAYS PERHAPS OVER 10 INCHE MS,AYBE UP TO 12 INCHESF O RAIN FOR PLACES LIKE HOUSTON GALVESTON EVEN OVER TOWARDS THE LAKE CHARLES AREA RFO US. WE COULD SEE ATHNYING FROM SAY AROUND AN INCH AND A HALF OF RAIN FOR WASHINGTON PARISH AND THEN DOWN TOWARDS SAY HMAOU GALLIANO, MAYBE MORE LIKE FIVE INCHES OF RNAI RAIN. WE DO NOT NEED SO DO BE PREPARED. PERHAPSP U TO FIVE INCHES OF INRA. IT ALL DEPENDS ON EXACTLY WHAT THE STORM DOES AND AS YOU SAW MODELS DON’T HAVE A GOOD GRIP ON IT RIGHT NOWWO T DIFFERENT OUTCOMES, BUT AS NICHOLAS CONTINUES TO ORGANIZE AND STRENGTHEN THE GULF OF MEXICO. WE’LL GET A BETTER IDEA ON EXACTLY WHAT THIS STORM IS GOING TO DO HOW FAST IT’S GOING TO MOVE HOW QUICKLY IT WILL TURN EAST AND FROM THERE. WE’LL BE ABLE TO GET A REALLY GOOD GRIP ON JUST HOW MUCH RAIN WE COULD SEE BUT IN THE MEANTIME, I WANT TO GIVE YOU A HEADS UP DO PREPARE FOR SOME HEAVY RAIN ON THE WAY. THERE’S A LOOK AT NICHOLAS RIGHT NOW ALREADY BRINGING RAIN TO PARTS OF THE COAST. WE’RE ALREADY SEEING RAIN HERE. YOU CAN SEE THAT WE’VE SEEN OFF ANDN O SHOWERS AND HEAVY RAIN THROUGHOUT THE DAY GRAND ISLE SEEING RAIN RIGHT NOWAM SE FOR GALLIANO AND TTHA CONTINUES UP TOWARDS LAFITTE AND THEN SOME OTHER SHOWER ACTIVITY OVER TOWARDS HOUMA THAT EXTENDS EVEN UP INTO PORTISON OF THE NORTH SHORE THOUGH NOT A WLEHO LOT OF RAIN THERE. SO WE’RE GOING TO CONTINUE TO SEE OFF AND ON SCATTERED RAIN OVERNIGHT TONIGHT THEN TOMORROW A BIT. MORE RAIN STILL SCATTERED OFF AND ON THROUGHOUT THE DAY TOMORROW FOR MONDAY, BUT THEN BY TUESDAY, THAT’S WHEN WE’LL SEE MORE RAIN. YOU CAN SEE THAT HERE NOTICE THAT. SEEDS SCATTERED SHOWERS, MAYBE EVEN SOME THUNDERSTORMS ON OUR MONDAY AND THEN AS WE HEAD INTO TUESDAY WATCH THIS LOOK AT ALL OF THAT RAIN THAT WE ARE EXPECTING ON TUESDAY.

Tropical Storm Nicholas forms, expected to bring heavy rain to Gulf Coast

Tropical Storm Nicholas has formed and is expected to increase our rain chances this week. Nicholas is in the Southwestern Gulf. The storm is expected to move along the Texas Coast and approach Houston by Tuesday night. Nicholas will gradually strengthen as it moves northward but is forecast to still stay at tropical storm strength before making landfall. Southeast Louisiana is not in the cone, but Nicholas will push tropical rains toward that area. Southeast Louisiana could see up to 5 inches of rain while parts of southwest Louisiana could see over 10 inches. Impacts to Southeast Louisiana will include increased rain chances later in the week. Watch the video above for the full story.
