Wow, yesterday was chilly! I am sure you recall that the day was overcast, cool, and damp with several periods of rain and drizzle. Highs were only in the 60s, which is very unusual for July. New July 14th records for the coolest high temperature were set in the Greater Hartford Area and Bridgeport. In the Greater Hartford area, the old record is 69 degrees, set in 1960, was smashed with yesterday’s 64.
As promised, a few showers popped up due to the heat of the day and slightly cooler air aloft. As the evening comes, these showers will slowly wind down, likely dissipating completely by around midnight. The air down here near the ground will remain dry enough to support temperatures falling into the upper-50s in most areas and low-60s in some of the milder spots, like some Shoreline communities. The sky will turn partly to mostly clear by morning.
The weekend will bring some good weather and some bad. As it stands now, Father’s Day will be the better of the two weekend days for outdoor activities. Today will be iffy. The cause of the showers and clouds we expect will be the warm front approaching Connecticut. This system will keep the sky mostly cloudy with periods of rain possible, especially early in the day. That said, we are not expecting a total washout.
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".
