The dew point in Louisville reached 70 yesterday morning and has been in the mid 70's throughout the day today. This is in the oppressive to miserable categories. The dew point is an easy way to see how comfortable the weather will be during the summer months. Now as far as temperatures, the WLKY 7 day forecast has cooler and then turning hot again next week.
The total coast to coast eclipse is coming up on August 21. Portions of western and southwest Kentucky are in the path of totality. Louisville will have about 96% of the sun covered up. There is a big difference though in that last 4%. Seeing a total eclipse is so much better than a partial. Historical. Every day up through August 21 I will be posting an eclipse tip of the day. Some will be on this blog. All of them will be on my Facebook page.
Updated Wednesday afternoon......The Storm Prediction Center has lowered the Thursday severe risk from slight to marginal. Too many questions about cloud cover limiting the severe threat have resulted in the downgrade. The next severe update will be late tonight. Heavy rain is still a possibility with the NWS in Louisville calling for widespread 1 to 2 inches and isolated 2 to 4 inch amounts. All of Kentucky and southern Indiana is in a SLIGHT RISK for flash flooding on Thursday.
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".
