Mid-Missouri experiences a variety of extreme weather events and as a way to keep you up to date an informed, the ABC 17 Stormtrack Weather team is introducing Weather Alert Days. This severe weather season you will see new specialized graphics and new wording from the weather team to inform you that extreme weather is likely.
If you're heading out on the town this weekend, you may notice an unpleasant feeling if you are outside for too long. The warmer days we've been having are leading to some trees budding and releasing pollen into the air. The spring months can be quite unpleasant for many allergy sufferers, especially on days when the pollen count is high. But why do we see higher pollen counts on days when the sun is shining, it's dry and the weather is pleasant?
It's been a wild ride as far as winter has been concerned across Mid-Missouri. In just a matter of three months, the region has experienced record breaking cold, warmth, lack of snow and a growing drought. While the winter started off on a mild note, record-breaking cold spilled into the lower 48. This brought Mid-Missouri one of the coldest starts to a year ever recorded.
Wonder why the overcast skies are being pesky and not clearing out?
Ridging aloft is building into the Midwest, which is leading to sinking air. As the air sinks it heats up and forms an inversion. This ultimately prevents the clouds and cooler air from mixing out. #sciencehttps://t.co/oJrpRLpayc
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
