Normal high temperatures during the second half of February are still in the mid and upper 50s for central North Carolina. We will see temperatures well above average for the next several days. As afternoon temperatures soar to the upper 70s to near 80 on Wednesday and Thursday, we'll have a very good chance to set a new record both days. A cold front approaching from the north may only bring temperatures down a little for Friday. Then near record highs will be possible again over the weekend.
Tuesday morning's dense fog across central North Carolina will be slow to lift through the morning. It may take until around noon for the fog to completely lift. The fog has reduced visibility to less than a quarter of a mile in some locations. Drivers should slow down especially in neighborhoods where kids may be waiting at a school bus stop. Using your beam headlights will give you the best visibility when driving through the fog.
We get to trade our coats and jackets for t-shirts through the rest of the work week! Don't put your coat too far away though. You'll need it again this weekend. Look for mostly cloudy to partly sunny conditions Thursday afternoon as temperatures soar to the mid 70s across central North Carolina. Lows will then only drop to around 60 and the low 60s for late Thursday night and early Friday morning. Highs will return to the 70s Friday with a few spots in the Sandhills topping out near 80.
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".
