Today's high at Bradley Internation Airport was an astounding 77 degrees. The record hightemperature for the day in Hartford fell by 14 degrees. The all-time February high temperature record fell by 4 degrees. Of the 6 times the Hartford area has reached 70F in February - 3 of them have occured in the last year. This was the warmest temperature recorded in the Hartford area during meteorological winter. By any metric the warmth today was remarkable.
Remarkably warm weather will settle across New England Tuesday and Wednesday with temperatures soaring into the 70s in some locations. In the Hartford area we're forecasting 72F on Tuesday! This kind of warmth is extraordinary for February with 70F temperatures having been achieved only 5 times since 1905. What's even more remarkable is that two of those five 70F days occured just last year.
Over the last 24 hours there isn't much more clarity about our weekend snow threat. We know the pieces are there for accumulating snow but will they come together? Part of the reason for the uncertainty is that the upper level disturbance we're watching isn't even in North America! Once the "shortwave" as we call it moves through Alaska into Canada our computer models should have a better handle on what evolves this weekend.
Bridgeport's temperature spike today happened after the cold front moved through. At 7:30 they were at 57F with a SW wind. The wind turned NW (offshore) and the temperature spiked to 67F giving them an all-time February record. #nbccthttps://t.co/igyIW8ILff
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".
