The chances for rain and even a few heavy thunderstorms are on the menu this weekend as another western storm will pull out of the Rockies and into the plains, bringing us a 60% chance of rain and thunderstorms on Sunday afternoon and evening. Since some of the storms could be strong late Sunday, we have declared this Sunday a First Alert Weather Day.
To say that February was a cloudy, damp, dreary, and lousy weather month, would be an understatement. When you go back and look at the data, the Angelina County Airport, located just south of Lufkin and is our station of record for Deep East Texas, had measurable rainfall on seventeen of the twenty-eight days in the month of February. Every Saturday had rainfall of some kind, which is why it was very difficult to uphold those outdoor plans.
Today’s return of sunshine will be short-lived as another Pacific storm system and cold front will quickly bring back rain and thunderstorms over the next couple of days. With some of the rain being heavy at times and with the possibility of some of the thunderstorms capable of producing small hail and gusty winds, we have declared First Alert Weather Days for this Tuesday and Wednesday.
The intensity of the showers and storms has greatly decreased over the past few hours. There are no watches and warnings in effect in East Texas. Lightning and thunder will still be a possibility, but nothing severe is expected tonight. #ETXwxhttps://t.co/xoIazAxI4F
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for west central portions of Trinity County and south central portions of Houston County until 10:15 p.m. The storm is moving east at 30 mph. #ETXwxhttps://t.co/Yu3qXWmiDG
A Severe Thunderstorm Warning has been issued for the southwestern portion of Houston County until 9:15 p.m. The storm is moving east at 30 mph. Damaging winds and hail are the main threats. #ETXwxhttps://t.co/CVNb5eUuz4
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".
