West Michigan –The bitterly cold temperatures have lead to the strange ice formations on Lake Michigan called “Pancake Ice.”The reason the pancakes are so circular is because they turn and swirl in the water, picking up frazzle on all sides. Often, they will have a raised rim around the edge like a crust on a pizza because the pancakes often bump into each other in the water. Pancake ice ranges widely in size. They can be as small as a foot in diameter or as large as 10 feet wide.
West Michigan – After a break from the cold air and snow, get ready for another blast from the Arctic. The 6-10 Day Forecast shows below normal temperatures expected for a good portion of the country. The forecast is valid from Dec. 25 to Dec. 29. The center of the cold air is over the Northern Plains and Great Lakes. Only Florida and the Southwest are expected to see temperatures above normal. Above is the forecast upper air pattern for Sunday evening.
WEST MICHIGAN — The coldest air of the season will blast into the area tomorrow with falling temperatures and gusty winds. Temperatures will fall into the low-mid 30s tomorrow afternoon and continue well below average for the rest of the week and into the weekend. Wind chills by late tomorrow afternoon will be in the upper teens to mid 20s. Our Future Computer model is forecasting wind chills in the upper teens to lower 20s by late Wednesday afternoon.
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".
