Tropical Storm Nicholas is to hit the coast of Texas tonight and Monday. 3 Other disturbances moving in the Atlantic Ocean

Tropical Storm Nicholas, which formed off the eastern coast of Mexico this morning, is expected to intensify as it moves northwest into the Gulf of Mexico.

Nicholas is located about 170 miles east-southeast of La Pesca, Mexico, and 260 miles southeast of the mouth of the Rio Grande. The system is now moving north at two mph with maximum winds of 40 mph, according to the NHC at 8 p.m. Update.

Tropical Storm Warnings and Watches remain in place from the eastern coast of Mexico to the southern coast of Texas.

Storm outbreak warnings and a hurricane watch have been issued for Texas coasts, including Freeport, St. Louis Pass, Aransas Bay, San Antonio Bay, and Matagorda Bay.

“On the forecast track, Nicholas Center will pass near or far from the coasts of northeastern Mexico and southern Texas on Monday and move ashore along the coast of southern or central Texas on Monday night or early Tuesday,” NHC specialist Richard Bash said.

According to the NHC, there may be a gradual development as the waves turn into a tropical storm early next week as they move west over the Atlantic.

Closest to Florida is a depression expected to form near the southeast of the Bahamas in the next few days; Gradual evolution is possible as it moves northwest across the Atlantic. 

A tropical wave is expected to appear on the west coast of Africa in the next few days and has a 20% chance of forming in the next 48 hours and a 60% chance by next week.

Another wave that caused unorganized rain and thunderstorms near the islands of Cabo Verde earlier today has now dissipated.

If these systems formed in tropical storms, they would be named Tropical Storm Odette, Peter, and Tropical Storm Rose. The 2021 season has already seen 13 designated systems, including five hurricanes, three of which were significant hurricanes of Category 3.

Meanwhile, Hurricane Larry, landfall in Newfoundland on Friday night, became a post-tropical cyclone on Saturday morning and continues to make waves on the shores of the North Atlantic. NHC stopped tracking it by Saturday evening, but thousands are still without power.
