Get ready for Winter! While it won't be a high-impact event, it's looking more likely that we will see our first minor accumulating snow this weekend. An area of low pressure will move from Southwestern Iowa into lower Michigan through the course of the next 24 hours. As it does so, it will strengthen. As low pressure systems do that, they are able to produce more precipitation and wind. At 7:30pm tonight, rain will become widespread ahead of the area of low pressure.
Rain showers will exit the region late this morning with increasing sunshine for the afternoon. But the real cold air behind today's cold front won't move in until late-afternoon and early-evening. That's when you'll really feel the change. We'll have high temperatures around 53 degrees in the 2-3 p.m. timeframe. After that, temps will tumble significantly on the heels of gusty northwest winds. Temperatures will fall to 46 degrees by 5pm and into the 30s by bed time tonight.
First off, please note: this is a forecast for 8-9 days from now. While we would love to give specifics on the exact type of weather and timing, there's no accurate way to do that. However, there are at least some indications we could have snow on the busiest travel day of the entire year: next Wednesday. Here's the set-up. According to the National Weather Service's GFS computer model, a developing area of low pressure will scoot across the Midwest Wednesday.
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".
