Heavy snow fell over northern Iowa late last night, adding up to 9.0″ in Fort Dodge with over 6″ in many parts of Pocahontas, Sac, Hamilton, Hardin counties. The narrow band of snow central Iowa saw early yesterday afternoon quickly moved north and settled over the Hwy 20 corridor late last night. Because this horizontal swath of snow was moving along a fairly stationary boundary, it had little north or south movement.
Light snow will move into central Iowa during the afternoon Thursday as the next system begins to arrive. This system will be quite a bit different from the one we saw on Monday as snow is expected to fall over a much longer period of time and the wind direction and speed will be nearly opposite. A stationary boundary extending from Nebraska through Montana will transition into a very slow moving warm front Thursday.
An active pattern at the upper levels is keeping several chances for snow in the forecast for Iowa. Another round of light snow is expected Wednesday night as the first wave pushes through. Most of this snow will fall after 10:00 p.m. and before sunrise with snow totals mainly under an inch. Impacts on the roadways will be minimal. The second wave will be Thursday into Friday which looks to be the system with the greatest impact potential.
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".
