GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A quiet, cool stretch of weather will come to an abrupt end across West Michigan by Thursday, June 22. Warm, moist and unstable air will surge north along and ahead of a warm front. That frontal boundary will provide the first round of storms early Thursday morning. The cold front will provide the final round of storms by late Thursday night and early Friday morning. This round has the best chance to produce strong, damaging wind gusts and even large hail.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - After a long, pleasant stretch of weather -- summer-like heat and humidity is poised to return to West Michigan. A large ridge of high pressure will build across the Great Lakes states this weekend as temperatures soar. Temperatures and humidity levels will surge as a southwesterly flow pumps very warm air back into Michigan. Grand Rapids hasn't reached 90 degrees since September 6 -- that streak could end as early as Sunday.
GRAND RAPIDS, MICH. - A freeze warning goes into effect late Sunday night for all of Lower Michigan. Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures to plummet. By early Monday morning, most areas will drop below freezing. Areas away from Lake Michigan could drop into the mid-20s. Sensitive plants that aren't protected will be impacted. Growers are already taking steps to protect their fruit crop. Potted plants left outside should be brought indoors or covered.
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".
