The last few days have been hazy across the South Plains. Smoke from wildfires across the Western United States is the culprit. We managed to see less smoke from the wildfires across the Pacific Northwest and Montana region Labor Day, but smoke is starting to move across the area from the west Monday evening. Smoke is expected to increase tonight and Tuesday as a cold front tracks across the region. Those who suffer from respiratory illness or asthma may notice this increase in smoke.
Areas around Houston saw 20 to 35 inches of rain during the past 24 hours. More rainfall is expected to our south. New models are coming in suggesting Harvey is starting to move a little bit. It may end up in the Gulf again briefly before curving back into Southeast Texas or Louisiana. Heavy rain threats continue through Tuesday or Wednesday. Locally, the storm will draw a cold front into our area. Storms are lining up across the Panhandle. This line is tracking southward.
The Central and Northern South Plains will have a marginal risk for severe thunderstorms Tuesday afternoon and Tuesday night. This area includes Lubbock and most of the Central and Northern South Plains. A cold front will slowly move to the south during the afternoon and evening hours. This will create the risk for severe thunderstorms across the northern and central South Plains as we head through the day. The main risks include damaging wind gusts up to 60 mph.
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".
