LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - As a way to ensure you're receiving comprehensive coverage during times of severe weather, the WAVE 3 News Storm Tracking Team offers this detailed schedule to help you plan your Saturday as safely as possible.
SIDNEY, NE (WAVE) - A great deal of what I know about severe weather forecasting comes from chasing storms over the past ten years with Storm Chasing Adventure Tours. Most weeks in May through mid-June there’s severe weather in the Great Plains, including tornadoes. But what happens when you’re chasing storms during a week with little tornado possibility? Is it worth it? Do chasers go home?
HAPPY SPRING EQUILUX! Today is *actually* the day when #Louisville experiences equal day and night. This DOES NOT HAPPEN ON THE EQUINOX (on Tuesday) because light from the sun gets bent at the horizon, causing the equinox to have a slightly greater duration of daylight than dark. https://t.co/D8R4qHwnL1
This is called the equilux and happens a few days before the equinox in the spring and a few days after in the fall. Light from the sun gets bent around the horizon, causing us to actually see more duration of light on the equinox even though the sun is over the equator.

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".
