Ok it's time for an opening bid on snowfall amounts. -These numbers are counting on a close pass but, believe it or not, not a direct strike from this storm. (Would be 20" if so)-Winds continue to be a big concern along the coastline with gusts over 60 MPH likely over Downeast. -Timing: Starts Thursday morning, heaviest Thursday night, wrapping up on Friday morning with light snow lingering after that. -Since track is SO essential please stay with me on this storm. A wiggle west would be huge.
Let’s skip talking about the next two days because: 1) It’s going to be cold which is boring and stinks and 2) Thursday is the elephant in the room. There’s already been quite a bit of buzz on social media about a developing storm system that will approach Maine on Thursday. Even I have used words like “monster” to describe this system…and I stand by that. There’s little doubt there will be an absolute bomb of a snowstorm over the North Atlantic on Thursday night.
Freezing rain is slowly being scoured out of the state, but more specifically what's happening is the storm is drying up. That's good news as ice accretion numbers are teetering right on the edge of more major power outages. But by later tonight the storm will finish up, ending as some snow across northern Maine and the mountains. (Caribou probably isn't getting 6 more inches....this model gets a lil excited sometimes) We get a break on Sunday with partly cloudy skies and seasonable temperatures.
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".
