Most of the UK is battening down the hatches for heavy downpours with the risk of gales in parts from mid-week. Stormy Atlantic conditions will clash with bitter air over the UK bringing heavy snow to Scotland over the coming days. Up to four inches could fall over high ground with the chance of a dusting to lower levels, forecasters have warned. However most of the UK will be hanging up winter coats by Wednesday with the mercury set to touch 15C (59F).
Snow could fall to low levels in Scotland and the north as bitter Arctic winds sweep the region, experts warn. A nationwide split will bring milder conditions to the south on Saturday although most places will nudge freezing tomorrow night. Thermometers will dip to -6C (21.2F) or below in rural northern areas with lows of between 0C and -4C (24.8F) forecast more widely. Bitter gales threaten to batter the northern fringes of Scotland with thunder and snow forecast over high ground.
Temperatures plummeted last night as Arctic winds swept the nation amid forecasts freezing conditions will hold out into next spring. Winter storms will whip up blizzards leaving parts of the country under three feet of snow by Christmas, according to some forecasters. The warning comes as meteorologists confirm sea temperatures have dropped across the eastern Pacific reaching La Nina thresholds.
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".
