RICHMOND, Va. -- The normal high for this time of the year is 90°, so it is supposed to be hot and humid. However, highs the past few days have been in the upper 90s with some triple-digits in spots. When combined with the humidity, the heat index has been near or above 105°. The heat will ease as the week progresses.

RICHMOND, Va. -- The heat from the past few days will last through the rest of the weekend. Highs both Saturday and Sunday will be in the mid and upper 90s for most areas. It will be a few degrees cooler to the northwest where there will be more cloudiness. Isolated areas across southeastern Virginia may hit 100°. The combination of heat and humidity will push the heat index near or above 105° Saturday afternoon into Saturday evening.
RICHMOND, Va. -- Not only is it very hot and humid, but the air is also pretty stagnant. Ground-level ozone may exceed unhealthy standards. For that reason, the Virginia Department of Environmental Quality has issued a "Code Orange Air Quality Alert" for the Richmond metro area until midnight. This includes Richmond and the Tri Cities, as well as the counties of Charles City, Chesterfield, Dinwiddie, Hanover, Henrico, New Kent and Prince George.
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".
