Spring is less than 2 weeks away, and it’s pretty obvious when you look around Central Texas. Grass is growing along our highways and across our parks, trees are blooming, and there have already been a few Bluebonnet sightings! Even though we haven’t officially started Spring yet, get ready for a blast of Spring-like weather both Friday and Saturday! Thursday’s high temperatures rose into the upper 60s and low 70s, which is near normal for this time of year.
A strong cold front plowed through Central Texas Saturday, dropping afternoon temperatures into the 30s and 40s. Conditions will go downhill overnight Saturday and into Sunday as moisture spreads across the region. Starting Saturday evening, temperatures will fall into the low 30s and upper 20s from north to south. The coldest temperatures will likely reside across our northern and western-most counties, which is where a Winter Weather Advisory is in effect.
Another round of wintry weather is expected to move into Central Texas late Monday. Scattered showers will start developing across Central Texas starting Monday afternoon. This will be ahead of a cold front surging in from the north. Once the cold front moves through, temperatures will start falling, and showers will start switching over to freezing rain. Road conditions could start getting messy as early as 9:00-10:00 P.M., especially for areas north of Waco, Temple and Killeen.
Heads up, Central Texas! Isolated severe thunderstorms will be possible Saturday. Most of us will probably stay dry, but any storms that go up could turn severe quickly.
TIMING: Saturday Afternoon - Evening
THREATS: Large hail, damaging winds
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".
