Temperatures are set to plunge tonight as numbing winds roar in from the east bringing bitter gales, ice and snow. Overnight temperatures are forecast to hit -10C (14F) in parts over the coming nights with lows of 0C or under expected widely. Daytime temperatures are unlikely to lift above freezing on Sunday with many places staying below, experts warn. Bitter weather will be driven by bitter winds from Eastern Europe and Russia which will make it feel much colder than temperatures suggest.
Just weeks after Britain bid goodbye to the Beast from the East the Siberian monster mega-freeze is set to return. Elderly and vulnerable people have been warned to stay indoors while drivers are being urged to take extra care on the roads tonight. Brutal 70mph winds will whip up blizzard conditions through tomorrow as the nation hunkers down for winter's parting shot. The Met Office has in the past few hours ramped up a raft of severe weather warnings across England, Scotland and Wales.
The Met Office has ramped up a raft of severe weather warnings for snow and ice ahead of the “significant cold snap”. A Government health alert was this week raised to level-3 “Cold Weather Action”. The caution, issued by the Met Office with Public Health England, warns of “severe cold weather and heavy snow” until Tuesday. The mercury could sink to -10C (14F) in parts over the coming nights, while daytime temperatures will hover at freezing or below into next week.
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 Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
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, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
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".
