THE REST OF THIS WEEK…The morning has featured some downpours in the Litchfield Hills and fog... especially along coastal southeast CT, reducing visibility to a quarter of a mile or less. Temperature-wise, it was noticeably warmer (by 5-7 degrees) compared to Monday morning. As the fog lifts and clouds erode, the sun will shine and temperatures will warm to the mid and upper 80s away from the Sound and into the 80 to 85 degree range along the coastline.
The common theme over the coming days will be heat and humidity, as well as an ongoing chance for afternoon, isolated thunderstorms. Our average high for mid-July is 85 degrees... we'll see high temperatures between 85 and 90 through Friday. Although the threat of a shower or thunderstorm will be low today, they can’t be ruled out as a disturbance moves through the Northeast.
For the rest of today, expect more clouds than sunshine with temperatures topping out in the 80 to 85 degree range. Additionally, it will be a bit muggier. Yesterday we had dew point values in the 40s today, they're in the 50s and 60s. While we'll remain dry through the rest of the day, we can't rule out some showers by early tomorrow morning with the arrival of a warmer/muggier air mass.
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".
