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.



  • I'm a fan!

    So far I like everything about Dark Sky. It's accuracy is uncanny. This is particularly useful here in South Florida where it can rain for 6 hours or 5 minutes. Unless I'm missing something or can't find it, my only reservation and probably the item that would make this app perfect is lightning information. Distance, time, and notifications would be great. Thanks

    Great app simple to use weather info at your fingertips. Perfect replacement for my Weather Channel app which is getting too complicated, too many screen to scroll constant layout changes and too much advertisements.

  • Best Weather App For Hourly Forecast

    By nickname is taken 24
    The hourly forecast is consistently more accurate and detailed than my metropolitan market news stations. I can plan for outdoor activities and chores to the hour within 24 hours prior. The misses are few enough that I cannot remember the last time the forecast was inaccurate. The extended forecast is updated frequently. This helps with accuracy within a day or two. No better or worse than any other source. The radar is fine, but buggy. If you live in a metropolitan area, your local news station will likely operate an advanced short range radar. I have no idea. I just know the local radar seems like a generation ahead of the one on the app. I use this app for the hourly forecast and updates throughout the day. I use a different app for the radar. Well worth whatever I paid for the app. Thanks!

    I made the mistake of believing the review offered by “Editor’s Choice”. This app offers little, but numbers. How about a more functional weather radar, cloud feature with layers from which to choose? How about actual text/discussion forecast info? How about tropical system info and tracks? The app tells me rain probability. How about a distinction between rain, showers and thunderstorms? How about severe weather warning boxes on the radar? To get an accurate picture of expected weather, I must use an additional app to fill the unacceptable void left by ‘Dark Sky’. Regret I clicked buy.
  • Overrated?

    By NY Jonny
    I purchased this app based on it’s reputation, I’m a little disappointed so far. The radar is subpar and needs layers. App needs to be editable for users to set their own preferences.
  • This app is as good as gets

    By AMB557
    No one can predict the weather but this app is as close to anything as I have seen. The weather predictions are 70% right on cue. Which is good enough for me! Today only we were worried about moving cabinets from one house to another and it was calling for thunderstorms most of the day. Dark sky said rain chances at 8pm. Well it starred raining heavily at 7:30. I can live with that window. Best money I have spent and I have it for 4 years now
  • Great weather app

  • Useful!!

    By Kitaelia
    This is one of the most useful apps (if not the most useful) that I’ve had the pleasure of using! My husband and I are always giggling at just how accurate the weather predictions are! Thank you so much!
