Dark Sky Weather

Dark Sky is the most accurate source of hyperlocal weather information. With down-to-the-minute forecasts, you’ll know exactly when the rain will start or stop, right where you’re standing. (It’s like magic.)

Featured in: New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Fast Company, Wired, and more.

Dark Sky is able to create forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next day and week.

The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make the world’s first perfectly smooth radar animation. Other apps show you a chunky slideshow that makes it nearly impossible to tell how storms are moving. But Dark Sky’s radar animation lets you see the actual path of the storm: how it moved in the past, and where it’s going in the future.

Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options: Receive down-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of government severe weather alerts (for such things as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes, etc.), or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things like temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Even if you haven’t opened the app in days, Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it.

The Dark Sky Notification Center Widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour and the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before heading out.

Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages.

Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and check out the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built from scratch for Apple Watch.

But which one is better for Apple Watch? Do you get notifications on the Apple Watch with both? Is carrot weather worth the extra cost?

I rely on this app to keep me updated with weather and changes for training and recreational use. I have been using this app for years and it has been fantastic until the new refreshed look update. I’ve tried to give it time but i just don’t like the new look, but thats not reason enough to give a low rating. Something has changed with accuracy as it just doesn’t work for me anymore. The left side Bar for the day’s weather doesn’t seem display any blue for rain predictions for the day anymore which was useful for getting the best out of the day is one thing. I’m Sitting indoors typing this review as it did say the afternoon was going to be ok, but it’s raining more than i would like for a bike ride. I know weather predictions can never be 100% but something is just not right with this app anymore. I’m not sure i want it on my home screen much longer.

I’ve been using this app for around 15 months now and it has become the default reference when I’m planning around the weather. I’ve found the local forecasts to be pretty accurate. I really like their widget and I get all the information I need to plan my day or excursions. There is an option to report in weather so they can improve their service if necessary and I like the different notifications and summaries that are produced. The one hour look-ahead for rain is really useful in the UK if you do much in the outdoors. The satellite rain radar is okay but I think the “Home and Dry” app does this aspect a little better and is easier to read; however I’ve noticed the Dark Sky team are regularly improving their offering so I suspect they’ll catch up sometime. Overall a really useful and informative app and one I expect to use for years to come.

Great work on the app in the last few months, lots of support and now working reliably again after a patchy spell! Could of requests for future updates: - Bring back silent period for notifications, I know I can do this with do not disturb but I still wake up to 10 notifications of rain at 2am! - Allow us to set the old watch complication where it was just the temperature and changed to a rain icon when appropriate, even better, add some more choice eg just the weather condition icon - Bring back the graphs in notifications, these were great as I didn't have to open the app to see how heavy the rain would be

This app used to be the best. Accurate to the minute. A few months ago they made a bunch of changes and now it is less than useless. The forecast is not even close. I wrote to support a month ago and they replied it was being fixed. There has been no improvement. Huge disappointment. I finally gave up and deleted it.

Aside from the smooth radar viewing, which to me plays way too fast, there isn’t much on this app that makes it premium. The information you get about rain is way too basic. Weather underground has been accurate and provides the info that I need for free.

First off, excellent app given the number and varying quality of weather apps out there. It’s easy to use and fairly accurate. It’s my go to app for quick temp and forecast info. However.....basic color usage folks. I know you wanted to be different by using the blue radar data on the map, but there is a reason that radar data is the way it is, so people can tell the difference in precipitation type......green yellow red=rain, blue=snow, pink=sleet, etc. You don’t differentiate, it’s all displayed as blues and reds and I can’t tell what’s what. Like I said, I understand you wanting to be different, but sometimes you need to conform to the worldwide standards....
