If you’ve noticed that’s Tuesday’s forecast seems rather disgusting, take solace in the fact that this could be our last day of extreme heat this summer. The summer season officially ends one month from today — Sept. 22 — but the National Weather Service says high heat and humidity will officially take a hike after today in the Lehigh Valley. Highs will mainly be in the low and mid 90s across the region, pushing the heat index near and past 100 from Allentown to all points south and east.
If you’re staying in the Lehigh Valley for the solar eclipse today, you’ll have plenty of options for viewing – provided Mother Nature cooperates. The National Weather Service says clouds may spoil the show as they increase throughout the day, with rising confidence that storms will break out to our west in the early afternoon and move into parts of our area by mid to late afternoon. Unfortunately, that’s prime viewing time for the eclipse.
If the weather forecast happened to be graded by a five-star quality rating system, the next two days would likely earn stellar marks. Mostly sunny skies, low humidity and light winds are on tap, but the National Weather Service says the weekend is currently one big question mark. Meteorologists say highs will generally be in the low to mid 80s across the region today, except for coastal areas and areas far north, where highs will top off in the upper 70s.
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".
