This spring is expected to feature warmer-than-average temperatures across much of the Lower 48, moderate flooding on several major river systems and a continuation of parched conditions in the Southwest, according to an outlook issued by NOAA on Thursday. Temperatures over the next three months are favored to be above average across about two-thirds of the Lower 48 , including the nation's southern tier and the Northeast.
Story Highlights An active weather pattern will continue during the final days of winter. Two weather systems will spread snow and ice from the West to the Midwest and East into next week. The second storm system could evolve into the fourth Northeast coastal storm since March 2. Spring officially arrives next Tuesday, but winter will continue to hold on strong as more snow and ice spread from the West to the Plains, Midwest and possibly the Northeast into early next week.
Three nor'easters struck the Eastern Seaboard in a span of 11 days, presenting a strikingly similar appearance on satellite imagery while also hauling along their own unique set of impacts. The trio of nor'easters can be seen in the images below taken March 2 (Winter Storm Riley), March 7 (Winter Storm Quinn) and March 13 (Winter Storm Skylar). All three nor'easters have the classic comma-shaped appearance typically seen in satellite imagery when these powerful storms develop.
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".
