It’s common to have highs in the lower to middle 80s at the end of June. Right now, though, we’re in the midst of a seasonably cool weather pattern. Highs on Sunday were in the 60s to lower 70s, with lower 70s continuing on Monday. What makes this a bit notable is that it’s this cool without it being rainy. For parts of the area, it was the coolest rain-free late-June day in more than five years.
Summer began Tuesday night at 11:24 p.m., and today marks the first day in which we begin to lose daylight once again. You won’t really notice it, though – it’s only a four-second decrease. The amount of daylight lost each day will keep picking up until the first day of fall, and then it’ll slow down until we turn the tide again in December on the first day of winter. Interestingly, even though the amount of daylight is decreasing, our sunset is still getting a tiny bit later.
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) - We're on the edge of the heat and humidity the next couple of days, which keeps us in storm chances. Scattered storms are possible overnight, with a few in northeastern Iowa early on with the majority occurring in southern Iowa. Lows fall to the mid-60s. It'll be humid again on Friday with a chance of storms, mainly in the afternoon and evening. Some of those could be strong.
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".
