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.

In this week's video I go through two of the top downloaded paid weather apps on the iOS top charts: Dark Sky and Carrot Weather. Watch now to find out which ...

This is a great app they just need to fix the locations on apple watch its hit and miss since last update very buggy

3 star

I bought this app while abroad but now back home I cannot even update it without changing stores and sadly I do not get any rain notifications which was the feature O was excited about the most 😟

5 star

Absolutely fantastic app, very reliable and accurate. The app is easy to navigate, and very informative. The ability to change the apps background colour is excellent for different lighting conditions. I am very pleased with Dark Sky Weather. 11/10.

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 use Dark Skies an have for a long time the price of Carrot Weather is what I think is a little much

3 star

I like the UI so a star for that, and it does a good job telling me the current temperature. Another star for that. And they don’t sell our location data so a big star and thank you for that. But the forecasting part of this app is fairly inaccurate. Precipitation forecasts are very hit or miss. Dark Sky probably works very well if you live in New York, Los Angles, or Chicago where there are more robust and abundant sources of weather data. But in a medium size city like Minneapolis, I find the forecasts are really off beyond the current temperature or maybe the next 30-minutes. I want to give it a five star rating, but they need a better source for weather data in places beyond major cities.

2 star

I honestly do not write many reviews. Though after having multiple free weather apps and paying for this one, I felt it necessary. I set all the notifications on the app and the watch on and it completely drains my batteries, especially on my smart watch. It does not at all pick up or report small rain drop particles. Such as light drizzle or “misting’ rain. I am constantly submitting reports of rain that the app shows nothing of. Nor is there any easy way of contacting support to explain my problems. I am a tennis instructor that needs accurate weather information in order to schedule my lessons correctly. It has on a few occasions predicted rain within a 15-20 min time frame. That’s why I gave the app the second star.

The overall app itself is very simple and informative. I love everything about it. The only thing I’m experiencing (and maybe others are too) is updating current location. I have mines on with “Always sharing” but when traveling to a different city or place, I always get notifications based on the previous area I was at before and have to manually refresh the settings in order to get my actual location. Please fix and it will be a perfect 5 🙏🏽
