CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- After some much-needed rain yesterday, today will be a dry one with warm temperatures into the lower 90s. Heat indices won't be as high as earlier this week as the mugginess has come down a bit from the front coming through. There are a few more storm chances on the horizon though, with the first chance coming tonight. While not widespread, the chance is at least there.
With June upon us, it's time to see what this month may hold. Before we get too far into this, precipitation is a crap-shoot due to how thunderstorms behave and how wildly totals can vary from location to location. However, temperature-wise, things are pointing towards a good chance of seasonal averages for the month. This map shows a re-construction of average June temperatures in both 1930 and 1981. Why were these months chosen?
This pattern is very conducive to keeping those windows open and saving on some utility bills. We have lots of 70s in the First Alert Forecast ahead, including for the upcoming holiday weekend. Just beyond the weekend, next week continues to look like we’ll be at or slightly below seasonal averages for the end of May into early June. What this means for you is a continuation or mild highs and very nice nights, generally with highs into the 70s.
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".
