GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - We've all seen the videos online of tossing boiling water in the air in freezing temperatures and seeing it turn to ice -- or videos like the one below of cute animals slipping on the ice! The WZZM 13 Morning News wanted to put some freezing experiments of their own to the test. At 2:30 a.m. producers, put two eggs, a bottle of pop, a can of pop, a can of distilled water and a couple banana's on the 13 On Target Weather Deck.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - The coldest air in more than 20 years is forecasted to occur early Friday, Jan. 5. Dangerously cold air will linger into the first part of the weekend before a quick warm-up. The X-factor regarding just how cold it will get is cloud cover. The fewer clouds overhead, the colder it will get. With enough clearing, records will likely be shattered across the region. The record low in Grand Rapids on Friday is -9. The forecasted low is -15.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - An area of low pressure will provide several more inches of snow in West Michigan this week. The system arrives midday Thursday, Dec. 28.

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".
