Earlier Tuesday, Tropical Storm Cindy formed in the Gulf of Mexico amidst unfavorable atmospheric conditions. Cindy is expected to strengthen only slightly before making landfall somewhere along the Louisiana/Texas coastline. It's unusual for storms to form this early in the Gulf of Mexico, but they have happened in the past. While Cindy will likely see max wind speeds only up to 50 mph, the storm will still greatly affect the Gulf Coast and have some influence on Mid-Missouri's weather.
Although summer temperatures have already been felt in Mid-Missouri, the official astronomical start of summer has yet to arrive. At approximately 11:24 p.m. Tuesday, the sun will reach the highest point in the sky in the Northern Hemisphere. Here in the Northern Hemisphere, the sun will be directly overhead at noon at the Tropics of Cancer, which is at 23.5 degrees north of the equator.
Typically, as we head into the middle of June, summer heat will have anchored itself into Mid-Missouri. That certainly hasn't been the case this year, as a cold front accompanied by strong storms tracked through the region Saturday night. Following the strong storms that swept through Mid-Missouri, cooler and drier air started to filter into the area. It's this drier air that will play a key role in our weather for the first part of the workweek.
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 Obama AND Romney or Obama + Romney.
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, search for democrat OR republican to find results that refer to
Democrats and/or Republicans.
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".
