TYLER, Texas (KETK) – Nicholas became the sixth hurricane of the 2021 Atlantic Basin hurricane season and the fourth land-falling hurricane in the United States. Overnight into Tuesday morning, the storm lost a lot of its punch for the heavy rain threat. For our area, we will continue to see light showers for the remainder of the day.
