Excited Burton folk attending Sunday's big Christmas lights switch-on face a chilly evening - but milder air will return on Monday, November 20. Forecasters say it will be cold on Saturday morning with some showery rain. The afternoon will see drier and sunnier conditions return, in time for the following day's annual lights switch-on.
Snow is set to fall in the South for the first time this season - as a new icy Arctic blast sweeps across the UK and sends temperatures plummeting. The weather will turn much colder by the end of the working week, with the mercury suddenly dropping and showers turning wintry, forecasters predict. Set to strike within days, the blast of Polar air will cause temperatures to tumble over the weekend - while southern England is facing its first snowfall.
Here on Teesside we’ve been experiencing a cold snap, with many speculating a dusting of the white stuff could be in its way. Experts say an ‘icy Arctic blast’ will send temperatures tumbling over the weekend with the risk of more snow falling on high ground. It will also get much colder by the end of the working week with single figure temperatures. But before then, according to forecasters, we’ll experience milder weather with rain and drizzle.
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".
