A few other stations across eastern Montana and western South Dakota also reported temperatures near 40 below. These anomalously low temperatures were, in part, due to a condition known as cold air damming.The Arctic air blowing into the northern Plains was encountering the uphill slopes of the Rocky Mountains in Montana.
The temperature record for Fargo-Moorhead starts January 1, 1881. This is the 138th year of record.But this means, for each day, there are only 138 samples, and one has to be the warmest and one the coldest. The odds of any day being a record high or low is roughly the same as the odds of being dealt three of a kind in a five-card poker hand. It's rare, but it certainly happens.Most years pass with at least one or two daily records.
The weather has been generally cold since Christmas. Most of the days and nights have been well below average. But to put this into perspective, there have been no record low temperatures during the past three weeks. No records have been set for number of days or nights below zero. It has been cold, but not unusually so. It would likely have been colder, perhaps by a few degrees each day, had our snow cover been deeper. This is due to the isolative and radiative properties of deep snow.
Quiet weather for our area, but a different story for other parts of the region. This photo was taken this afternoon in Dakota Dunes, SD. As of 1:45 pm, 11 inches of snow has fallen. Thank you Lynnette Grant for sharing this report. https://t.co/rIGM48i9JU
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".
