BOSTON (CBS) – It looks like an active weather day ahead for a portion of New England. A WBZ-TV Storm Watch Weather Alert has been posted because of the potential for tropical drenching downpours and possible strong to damaging wind gusts in a few spotty strong to severe storms. The trigger is an approaching cold front from the west. With showers and storms training over the same general area Monday afternoon and evening, the threat exists for some street and urban flash flooding.
BOSTON (CBS) – The WBZ-TV Storm Watch Weather Alert is in effect with the potential for a few nasty storms later Tuesday. The stage is set for the appearance of a few scattered afternoon to early evening thunderstorms. A cold front will be shifting southeastward from the St. Lawrence River Valley. An upper level impulse will interact with the frontal boundary and enhance the risk for the storms. They will be brief, lasting less than 25 minutes and, as per usual, be hit-and-miss from place-to-place.
While most people wonder about the upcoming weather for every winter season, almost as many are curious how the summers will shape up too. The Memorial Day Weekend is considered the unofficial kickoff of the summer season even though summer does not begin until the solstice at 12:24am on June 21. What can you expect this summer? Will it be a scorcher like last summer when the temperature maxed out at 90 or higher on 12 days in July and 7 days in August in Boston?
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".
