GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A powerful storm will provide the threat for severe weather and flooding Wednesday, July 12. The first round of the storm will provide very heavy rainfall and strong thunderstorms through early afternoon. The main threat from this line will be from flooding -- three to four inches are possible in some places. A few of the stronger cells could contain some hail and gusty winds.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - Confidence continues to grow in West Michigan's chances for severe storms Wednesday, July 12. A warm, moist and unstable air mass continues to surge north from the Gulf of Mexico. A warm front lifts north into West Michigan early Wednesday. It will provide scattered storms. The main threats from these storms will be from very heavy rainfall and frequent lightning. A second, more powerful line of storms is possible starting Wednesday afternoon.
The same complex of thunderstorms that brought flooding to several counties in Wisconsin weakened slightly as it drifted across Lake Michigan. Areas along and south of I-94 picked up the most rain as towns north of I-96 received very little. Isolated storms are possible late Monday, but the widespread thunderstorms many of us saw Monday morning is unlikely. There should be a lull in the precipitation most of Tuesday. Thunderstorms are possible again Wednesday, with the threat for severe weather.
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".
