The latest US Drought Monitor Map, released this morning, shows 85 percent of Texas is "abnormally dry."

Eighty Texas counties currently have burn bans in effect, according to a Texas Parks and Wildlife map. Travis County is not currently under a burn ban but the neighboring counties of Williamson, Lee, Burnet, and Blanco are.

Winter weather pounded several areas in the northeast yesterday, especially Buffalo, NY. Storm warnings are being issued all over the colder parts of the United States, including our doppelganger, Austin, Minnesota.

Here's some video to keep that slightly chilly Central Texas weather in context.
