The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for a stripe of counties across central Alabama where confidence is high that one-half to 2 inches of snow, with some 3-inch amounts, will fall today. Widespread snow is falling across much of the area this morning as moisture is moving up from the southwest into colder air that is coming in from the northwest.

It’s Iron Bowl Saturday in Alabama, and you couldn’t ask for much nicer weather for the Winner Take all Match in the SEC West in Auburn at 2:30 p.m. today. Skies will be partly cloudy to partly sunny for the game. Temperatures will start off in the upper 60s at kickoff and fall into the 50s by the end of the contest. Winds will be westerly turning to the northwest by the end of the game, averaging 4-6 mph. Bill Murray: Iron Bowl weather will be nearly perfect from Alabama NewsCenter on Vimeo.
WATCH OUT: Dense fog formed across much of the area overnight as skies cleared above a moist air mass. Visibilities were restricted to near zero in spots, and spectators had trouble seeing the football plays at some high school games last night in north Alabama. Visibilities will continue to be reduced in spots across the area until mid-morning. DISTURBED FLOW: Alabama has been in a mainly zonal flow for most of the week, but that flow has been messy, with upper-level disturbances since Wednesday.
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".
