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.)

YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE
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.
BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS
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.

Been using Dark Sky for some time now and it’s been great my only worry now is Apple. Hope they do not break it or close it down because so far iOS 14 weather app is not up to the job.
Forecasts could be miles better, so inaccurate at my location, have been reporting corrections but they seem reluctant to change to what the wether is actually doing - please fix
Here on the UK south coast the weather can quickly change due to proximity to the sea. When it works it works, but looking out of the window can sometimes be more useful.
Ran across Dark sky in 2017 and couldn’t be happier. Got a paid version. The accuracy could not be beat. So then why even change it? Was I the only one who wanted wind speed and direction? Very disappointed with what this app has become. You went from distinguished and in a class by yourself, to just another weather app in appearance. Hopefully the accuracy and prediction is still there, but why take valuable info and features away? Now it says it is drizzling for lengthy periods of time and it is clear as Abel outside. Apple must be more worried about their stock split than fixing whatever they broke in the best weather app there was

Very inaccurate forecast, changes every minute. Not any better than a free weather app with a poorer visual layout. Not worth a cent.
Excellent and refreshing look at weather data. Needs a makeover in appearances though. :) The Watch complication goes blank and doesn’t update sometimes
Problems are only opportunities with thorns on them.
