The Padre Island National Seashore has closed temporarily ahead of Tropical Storm Nicholas hitting the Texas coast.

Officials took to social media Sunday afternoon to alert potential beachgoers to the closure. The storm is expected to approach the middle Texas coast Tuesday.

San Antonio TV station KSAT reports that Tropical Storm Warnings are in effect for South Padre Island and Corpus Christi. In addition, Tropical Storm Watches extend to much of the rest of the Texas Coast, including the Houston and Galveston area.
