A First Alert Day has been declared for Saturday due to the potential for widespread storms that may be, at the very least, disruptive to your outdoor plans during the afternoon hours. A front will drop south across the Carolinas, which will trigger widespread storm development between around 2 p.m. and 6 p.m Saturday. Not every storm will be severe, but a few could be, with damaging winds and large hail possible.
Friday looks like it will be the hottest day of the year so far at 95° which will be the peak of this most recent heat wave. We had a few counties (Stanly, Anson, Richmond) added to a Heat Advisory for today, and these areas (perhaps a few more too) will likely be under one again for Friday. Expect Heat Indices 100°-105°. Storms will be isolated to scattered at best over the next couple of evenings, and if you do see one, you'll probably consider yourself lucky to have the cool-down!
After a week of active weather, we saw a break with storms Friday evening, but activity looks to ramp back up for the afternoon and evening hours Saturday with a front on the way. The front will provide the trigger for more organized storm development as it moves into a hot, humid and unstable air mass Saturday afternoon. Prior to the storms, it will be another day with temps in the low 90s and high humidity.
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".
