March is a transition month for us as the season changes from winter to spring in just two weeks. We can experience all types of weather this time of year from rain to snow and even severe storms. This March we are already experiencing some of those wild swings. The winter of 2017-18 has given us more snow than the previous year with December and January having a little over three inches each month and more than seven inches in February, which was well above average for that month.
OMAHA, Neb. (KMTV) - A Winter Weather Advisory remains in effect for the Omaha metro and surrounding region through late Thursday night, scheduled to expire at midnight. A wintry mix of snow, sleet, and freezing rain will cause travel issues tonight and Friday morning.Additional snow totals across the Metro will range between 1-2" through midnight with a thin layer of ice, of 0.1" to 0.2".
La Niña has been in full swing this winter season. The cooler-than-normal sea surface temperatures have been the driving force behind our below average snowfall and temperatures the past couple of months. However, there are signs that La Niña is fading and the water temperatures are warming again. La Niña is still expected to continue through at least March, but sea surface temperatures will start rising in April and May.
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".
