TUCSON - After a slow start, Monsoon 2017 has made up for lost time. And then some. As of July 24th, Tucson International Airport has registered 4.05" rain since the start of Monsoon. This is well above the average to date of 1.65". It should be noted that all of this rainfall has occurred in the last two weeks. Tucson is off to the 6th wettest recorded start to the Monsoon, with weather record keeping dating back to 1894.
TUCSON - Monsoon 2017's been off to a torrid start. This week looks to be a bit quieter. Metro Tucson stands a 30% chance of storms during the afternoon & early evening hours, according to 4WARN Meteorologist Jeff Beamish. The best chance of scattered storms today looks to be south and east of Tucson. Locally heavy rainfall is the primary threat with any storm that develops this afternoon. Daytime highs reach the low 90s in the Old Pueblo. Partly cloudy skies prevail overnight.
TUCSON - One month away from the biggest astronomy event in almost four decades. On August 21st, the moon passes between the sun and the earth, creating a solar eclipse. Portions of the United States will enjoy a total eclipse for the first time since 1979. The solar eclipse will only be partial for the state of Arizona. In Tucson, the partial solar eclipse is slated to start around 9:16 AM and peaks at 10:36 AM. The partial eclipse comes to an end just after 12 PM.
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".
