If you are a fan of cool air, we are just getting started! Today's highs are about 5-10 degrees below seasonal averages, but I think the greatest part about the whole thing is the lack of mugginess. Dew points managed to drop into the 40s this morning (anything below 60 is considered spectacular in August), and should drop to that level tomorrow morning, too. The coolest of the cool air looks like it'll go through Monday, but even well into next week and next weekend should be fantastic.
Our much-anticipated cooler airmass is knocking on the western door this morning! Plan on scattered storms to roam around eastern Iowa as the front makes progress through the area. While storms may create isolated downpours of up to a half an inch in spots, it appears many other areas will receive well under that. It's feasible that some areas will miss out on rain entirely.
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (KCRG-TV9) -- Our nice weather rolls on for a few more days. Plan on partly cloudy sky and highs around 80! Humidity levels will be very comfortable as dew points remain around 60. Thanks to a ridge of high pressure situated over much of the Midwest, our wind remains very light, too.
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".
