Starting today, the daytime temperature in Buffalo is forecast to be above freezing for the next five days. That will be the first streak of its kind since Dec. 1 to 5, 2017. Another week of frigid cold and back-to-back days of lake-effect snow in metro Buffalo padded the season's statistics as the coldest start to winter in Buffalo in 22 years and vaulted the city to fourth place among the nation's most snowiest cities.
It's rare that the Buffalo Niagara International Airport tops the regional lake-effect snow list. But, a rare lake-effect snow squall coughed up by a mostly frozen Lake Erie on Wednesday dropped the most — nearly 4 inches — in Cheektowaga, according to reports published this morning by the National Weather Service. That brought the snowfall total in Buffalo to 57.9 inches, which is about 7 inches more than normal by this time in the winter.
A band of moderate lake-effect snow is expected to bring another inch or two of snow across the Buffalo metro area through about 10 a.m. today, according to the National Weather Service. The snow was making for a slow-commute on area highways. "While amounts are light, the snow will keep most roads snow covered and slippery through the remainder of the morning commute," the weather service said in an alert issued at 8:10 a.m.
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".
