Will we ever get a break from the humidity? Central Florida is currently in a stretch of eight consecutive days of heat index numbers reaching triple digits. It doesn't look like we are going to get much of a break from the high heat and humidity for the first week of summer, either. The seven-day forecast features much of the same: Hot temperatures and 40-50% rain chances. High humidity isn't uncommon in Central Florida. In order to understand why, let's first talk about what humidity is.
Another cold day for Central Florida, but things look like it may warm up a bit by Sunday. We started Friday with freezing temperatures once again, only warming up to around 50 degrees for the afternoon. We did get to see plenty of sunshine here in Central Florida with only a few passing clouds. Sunshine and quiet weather will stick around this weekend as temperatures gradually start to warm back up. Highs will be in the mid to upper 50s on Saturday and in the mid to upper 60s by Sunday.
Hurricane Harvey has now strengthened to a major Category 4 storm as it travels over very warm water in the western Gulf of Mexico. As of 7:30 p.m. ET, the storm was located about 60 miles east-southeast of Corpus Christi. Top winds are up to 130 mph, which makes it a major category 4storm as it makes landfall tonight just northeast of Corpus Christi.
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".
