WEST MICHIGAN- It’s been a while since we’ve got a good, soaking rain. We avoided any heavy rain much of this weekend, and when you combine that with the heat and sunshine we’ve seen, fire dangers are going up. This frontal system to our north is going to be responsible for quenching our lawns’ and gardens’ thirst over the coming days. This morning and even in the early afternoon hours, we’ve dealt with a few showers and thunderstorms. If you drove 30 miles south, you’re in full sunshine.
WEST MICHIGAN- A lot of people will be headed out to the lake this weekend, but what are the conditions like along the lakeshore? Friday morning, some of the lake temperatures were still pretty cool. Waves haven’t been very big along the lakeshore in recent days, but we’ll see a slow increase in them over the next 24 hours. Winds out of the south and southwest will slowly increase throughout the afternoon and evening so you can expect those waves to pick up throughout the day.
WEST MICHIGAN- The exciting saga continues! We stayed pretty dry during the daytime hours last week, but there was a slight wrinkle in the forecast Saturday morning as a dying complex of thunderstorms moved into our area and left us with cloud cover and a few light sprinkles. There's a weak frontal boundary that caused a little bit of rain this morning. This will actually retreat further north and become a warm front before it becomes a stationary front. How does that affect you?
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".
