We missed out on the storm action this evening, with the strong line of storms staying well to the NW of our area. There were some strong/severe cells in there too, even prompting a couple of Severe T-storm Warnings and Flash Flood Warnings for NW Massachusetts and S Vermont. For us, nothing wild to write home about tonight, but we’ll have a better chance storms/showers tomorrow. Did you notice the humidity on the rise today? AKA “What’s happening to my HAIR?
Yes, yes… I see you all on Twitter and Facebook with your “Game of Thrones” references tonight: “Winter is coming…” I know, but I want to say that summer is HERE. Tonight is my first night back with the forecast on 7News after a wonderful vacation to my #Idahome (if you haven’t heard, I’m a peppermint farmer from Idaho). As always, I continued to follow the weather here in Boston while I was away – and I am well aware it was a wild week of weather for New England!
Yes, we are tracking severe storms here in New England this evening. We’ll continue to watch the threat of these storms slowly tracking to the east this evening, however it appears the threat for severe weather will lessen past 8pm tonight. In the meantime, the main threats with these storms will be heavy rain and gusty/damaging wind.
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".
