PHOENIX — The monsoon season “officially” wraps up Saturday after an unspectacular showing in Phoenix. Sky Harbor Airport has had 2.3 inches of rain since June 15, which is almost a half-inch below the normal rainfall of 2.71 inches. The last measurable rainfall at Sky Harbor was August 23. Some parts of the East Valley had 3-5 inches of rain. There was storm activity in July but a long stretch of extreme heat interfered with moisture the previous month. Monsoon season typically starts June 15.
PHOENIX — The National Weather Service said highs in Phoenix could climb to hotter than 110 degrees this week as monsoon-related moisture takes a few days off. The expected high of 111 degrees on Wednesday would be well above normal, as would other highs for the rest of the week. “There’s been a shift in the weather pattern which has brought drier air into the state,” meteorologist Mark O’Malley said.
PHOENIX — A potentially historic heatwave will put the state’s energy providers to the test next week. The Valley was expecting four straight days above 115 degrees, with Monday’s high forecast at 119 degrees and 120 or higher possible Tuesday. Utility companies Arizona Public Service, Salt River Project and others will be pumping out the power to keep the air conditioners going, possibly at record usage.
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".
