Breaking News: The WFAA Weather Team has taken the day off! Punxsutawney Phil has stepped up to take over all weather responsibilities. Early Friday morning, Phil crawled out of his home in Pennsylvania to see none other than his shadow! Of course that means we're subjected to six more weeks of winter. Though Phil has become a well-known meteorologist in the rodent community, humans should not fear.
It's our coldest morning in seven years! North Texans woke up Wednesday morning to temperatures below 20 degrees. The last time it was this cold was back in 2011. At least eight cities in North Texas saw record-low temperatures for Jan. 17, according to the National Weather Service of Fort Worth: Granbury (6 degrees), Bridgeport (4 degrees), Benbrook (9 degrees), Arlington (14 degrees), Decatur (7 degrees), Palestine (10 degrees), Sulphur Springs (8 degrees) and Paris (9 degrees).
Have you seen the now viral video of bare land where ocean used to be in the Bahamas and Tampa Bay? There is a scientific explanation for this...What happened in that video - and what is currently happening along the west coast of Florida is a result of persistent wind blowing the water away from the coastline. Think of it as the opposite of a typical storm surge. Instead of piling up the water against the coast, it's pushing it back out to sea.
The Winter Weather Advisory has been extended to include Denton County. A light coating of ice between now and tomorrow afternoon could create hazardous travel in the counties under the advisory #wfaaweatherhttps://t.co/1cXeCZS3cB

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".
