PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — Whether you love it or hate it when winter rolls around it seems to be the one thing many of you look for when you see the 7 day forecast. So how much snow will fall in the Philadelphia area this winter? We crunched the numbers, analyzed the atmospheric and oceanic trends and studied previous similar winters to create our 2017-18 winter forecast. We also got a little extra help from Mr. McCall’s 7th grade science class at Cherry Hill’s Carusi Middle School.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS)–Hurricane Jose formed around two weeks ago in the Atlantic and continues to be a storm to watch. On Tuesday, that storm will make its closest approach to our area. The good news? The center of Jose looks to stay over 200 miles east of the New Jersey coastline, meaning impacts will be rather minimal away from the immediate shore.
PHILADELPHIA (CBS)–Irma’s influence over the U.S. is finally waning, though we will still be dealing with some unsettled conditions through the weekend, with heat and humidity leading to pop-up storms. But then the focus shifts to Tropical Storm Jose, which is expected to re-strengthen into a hurricane before moving north this weekend. Here’s the latest track of Jose as of 11 p.m. Thursday, which has shifted just a bit east from the earlier update, keeping the cone of concern just offshore.
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".
