Holy wind, Batman! Today was a whipping, wild, windy day! I felt it too. In fact, this is a picture of me trying to walk into work:(obviously it’s not really me, but I’m sure I need to be clear about the fact that I’m just trying to be funny). The peak gust report with this round of inclement weather was in Fall River, up to 54mph. Several tree branches and limbs were taken down across the Bay State – and if you were out and about, you may have found it difficult to walk a straight line!
It may have just been me, but it felt like it got nicer as the day went on! Even though we lost our sunshine to cloud cover for Saturday afternoon, the winds were light through the day and we stayed dry during daylight hours. As we move through the overnight hours though, it’s a different story. Get ready for things to escalate…Scattered showers have already begun to fill in across the area, but the heaviest stuff is really during early tomorrow morning.
It was nice to have the sunshine back today, but the added chill from the wind kind of canceled that “warm sunshine” out. Temps topped out in the low to mid 40s again for us today, making it the 11th consecutive day with below average temperatures. Getting used to it? Or have you had enough? If you’re hoping for some days into the 50s… you’re in luck! Well, kind of. Hold on to your hats, because we’re in for a windy couple of days as well as a temperature roller coaster!
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".
