The National Hurricane Center confirmed the development of both Tropical Storm Lee and Tropical Storm Maria Saturday, the 12th and 13th named storms of the 2017 hurricane season. Lee and Maria join Category 1 Jose, making this the second time this season with three named storms in the Atlantic Basin at the same time. The long-term average for the Atlantic Basin is 12 named storms for the entire season, so we are well ahead of normal.
Today was another enjoyable weather day for most WAFB neighborhoods with fewer clouds during the afternoon than we expected. However, as we've been saying for a few days now, the run of very mild weather has just about reached its end, at least for the time being. Thursday looks like a decent September day though, with a morning start in the mid to upper 60°s under fair skies and an afternoon high in the upper 80°s under partly cloudy skies to possibly a sun/cloud mix.
No complaints about Tuesday's weather but it looks like our run of gorgeous "October" days is quickly coming to an end. The WAFB First Alert Forecast is mainly-dry for Wednesday and Thursday but you will notice an increase in both temperatures and humidity as we head towards the weekend. Plan for a morning start around 60° for the Red Stick on Wednesday with an afternoon high in the low to mid 80°s under a sun/cloud mix.
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".
