WEST MICHIGAN- We only have 2 days left of summer. Everyone’s covered their pool and packed up their boat, because it’s already past Labor Day and it’s going to be cold, right? It’s poised to be an incredibly warm weekend wherever you’re at in West Michigan, and pretty much everywhere in the mitten. Future Track temperatures keep us under 90 degrees Friday, but I think that’s going to be one of our warmer days with other guidance suggesting even warmer temperatures.
WEST MICHIGAN- The first day of of autumn officially arrives just after 4 in the afternoon on Friday, but it certainly won't feel like it at all. Abnormally strong high pressure will settle into the eastern half of the United States over the coming days. This will cause warmer air to settle into many regions that aren't used it this late in the season. As a result of this much warmer air, the first day of fall will be very close to a record here in West Michigan.
WEST MICHIGAN- If you've held off on storing your boat for the winter until October (like many people I've spoken to,) you're going to be rewarded this weekend for sure. Most of the weekend is extremely dry and warm. We've still got enough of a summer influence that this warmth isn't generated by strong southerly winds, so this will be a great day for the lake. We've got a slight chance for rain late Sunday, but I won't include it in the 3 day graphic because most of the day is very dry.
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".
