Dark Sky can tell you at a glance exactly when it will rain (or snow) up to an hour in advance, so you’re free to walk the dog or run out to lunch and know you’ll stay dry. You can also explore the most beautiful weather animation you’ve ever seen, both forward in time or back. (Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Using GPS, 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. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS 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. TODAY WIDGET 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. APPLE WATCH 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.

    This is my go to app for weather. Gives everything for my area. Even when traveling it follows me
  • Used to be five stars

    Recently the app has been completely inaccurate. It’s like the company stopped using a major dataset that truly gave them accurate forecasts. Very disappointed and embarrassed that I have recommended this to so many people.
  • These couple weeks terrible

    Now outside is rain but it says Heavy snow.... and just totally wrong forecasts. Even didn’t saying winter weather advisory It was the best app before and now piece of junk
  • Disappointing that GPS required

    By hoorayberet00
    I don’t know why the developer(s) have not allowed folks to setup a home address and then get a morning report based off that? To go beyond setting a location, why would folks who are homebound need to have GPS turned on? On a rare trip, I can see that point. But there should be a way to set and forget the location.
  • Notifications for weather

    The notifications are working again
  • Sadly, Very inaccurate!

    By SabreNight
    Very elegant, easy to read and use. Love the design. But during winter it has not clue of the weather. Right now it’s falling heavy snow and the app says clear skies. Ridiculous! For the rest of the seasons it’s alright.
  • Location

    By Recowboy
    Does not allow to zoom in to location for further review. Need to improve map for better visibility. Location improvement a must and all globe. Need more detailed info and hurricane tracker. Please improve. Thanks Needs location improvement. Saying I’m in a certain city when I’m not. Please improve Thanks!

  • “Getting your forecast”

    By Waffle14835
    I primarily use this app on my Apple Watch and I hate how it always displays the message “getting your forecast”
