The warmth, mugginess, and a cold front moving in will trigger storms later today that will last through the evening hours. Timing with the storms look to be roughly around 6 PM for the northwestern portion of the viewing area. Central eastern Iowa timing looking to be roughly around 7 to 8 PM and the far eastern portions will experience the storms soon after. Storm activity will last throughout the overnight hours and diminish early Friday morning. A few storms have the potential to become severe.
A few areas of sunshine will occur this afternoon. As the environment becomes more unstable storms will develop throughout the early evening and into the overnight hours. A few of these storms do have the potential to become strong. Hail and winds will be the main threats with any of the storms. Timing of the storms look to begin north of Hwy 20 roughly around 6 to 7 this evening. The Cedar Rapids area as of now looks to start nearing 9 to 10 PM.
We’ll start off the day with some sunshine across eastern Iowa. As the environment becomes more unstable storms will develop throughout the afternoon and evening. A few of these storms do have the potential to become strong. Hail and winds will be the main threats with any of the storms. Storms will come to an end and throughout the early hours. Saturday we’ll again see some sun. This will help fuel storms for the afternoon and evening. Once more there is a chance for strong to severe storms.
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".
