The Stateline gets a break from the harsh cold for Thursday and Friday, but it comes with a cost: light snow showers will make the morning and evening drives between work and home slippery. Snow falls in two rounds Thursday. The first arrives between 6-8 am, with amounts staying under 1/2". However, since it's so cold, any snow that falls will accumulate on the roads, so be careful. We'll get a break from the snow during the late morning and early afternoon.
The little blanket of snow on the ground will be gone for sure this weekend as the overall weather pattern changes from typically cold for this time of year to milder for a stretch this weekend. We can look forward to at least 4 days in a row above freezing, starting on Saturday. A ridge in the jet stream slides in over the weekend, drawing in the milder air. By Monday, temperatures may be in the 40's, if not sooner than that.
No snow and plenty of sunshine is expected throughout the remainder of the weekend after light snow showers Friday night. Amounts stayed on the lighter end overnight, with 0.2" of snow reported around Freeport and Rockford. Amounts rose as you moved east, with 1/2" to up to 1" reported around sections of Chicago and its suburbs. Lake effect snow will set up along the Lake Michigan coastline in Indiana, where 3" to over 7" of snow is possible.
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".
