Dark Sky Weather

Dark Sky Weather [Weather] App Description & Overview

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.

- Lost my Apple Watch complications

I am dismayed that I just lost the option to use Dark Sky as a complication on my Apple Watch. The app still appears on my watch, but not easily accessible on my watch faces. Was this a casualty of the latest WatchOS update? Please bring the complication back!

- Used to work

The last few weeks the data has been wildly inaccurate. I keep getting downpour alerts without a cloud in the sky. Used to be such an accurate weather app. Hopefully they fix the bugs.

- What happened?

Not sure what has happened with Dark Sky in the past week, but I’m constantly being told it’s raining heavily and getting notifications for heavy downpours when it’s hot and sunny and 110 outside. This has been an issue every day for a week straight.

- Love this app...ish

I love everything about this app except for one major glitch. When the weather is sprinkling rain, Dark Sky always tells you it’s overcast. Always. No matter how many times I report that it’s drizzling, nothing changes. Now, when it says it’s going to be overcast for 2 hours in the afternoon, I always bring an umbrella, and just as you guessed, it’ll be sprinkling rain for those 2 hours. Never fails.

- North Pacific Ocean

The app has been fine until last night when it moved my location from SE Idaho to the Pacific.

- What is going on?

Been really off the last two weeks, I live in AZ and there aren’t any clouds and all of a sudden it states that it will rain in 30 mins but there isn’t no clouds in the sky. This has happen all week so far. Need to fix these bugs.

- Dark Sky

An excellent weather program which I find to be very accurate. The weather alerts are useful. This application has a nice variety of helpful features.

- Inaccurate

Last year Dark Sky was spot on. If it said rain in 4 minutes, it would rain in 4 minutes. This is the 4th time it says it is POURING at my house, or raining someplace here. It might be cloudy, but no rain at all. Really disappointing.

- Recent bugs no way to notify

I live in AZ in the dessert where it’s 111 degrees and keep getting notifications of downpours multiple times a day. There isn’t a cloud in the sky for miles. Never had this problem before it’s very strange. Hope it’s not a sign of what’s to come now that Apple owns you. Their weather app stunk. Please fix!

- Not Accurate anymore

Sunny AZ, and it reported rain just stopped. It used to be accurate. What happened when Apple purchased it?

- The same “Special Weather Statement” has been up for five days

You can sure tell no one is minding the store anymore. Plus, the forecasts are wildly off in terms of rainfall predictions. Thanks, Apple!

- Low accuracy in forecasting days in advance

Very low accuracy for forecasting weather more than a hour out. It will let you know when rain is about to start, but not reliable to plan a day or two in advance. For example, this morning rain forecast was 9%, now rain is 100% within the next hour.

- Map is using stale radar data. 😟

Please fix !

- Bit of a weather geek

And spend a lot of time outdoors, work and play. Dark Sky is the best weather i have used, and i,ve tried plenty. Works well on apple watch too, which is very handy. (pardon the pun). I dont write many reviews, but this app is worth bragging on.

- “Downpour starting” alerts when there’s a clear blue sky

Used to be a great app but now I’m getting multiple notices about rain when the sky is completely clear. At least the temperature is still accurate?

- Used to be accurate!

What have you guys done to this app?!!! I could count on fairly accurate weather information but in the last week, I’ve gotten alerts about heavy downpours when the sky was totally clear for miles around. Please fix this or return it the original owners. I never had problems this bad when they were programming and sporting it! It’s not just the notifications that are messed up. The precip radar maps are totally wrong, too! Because of these problems, I don’t feel like I can trust any of the weather info and predictions any more.

- Used to love it

For the last 2 days it has been reported that Arizona was having heavy rains which in fact we never get. It also lists cities that are not in our state and I’m doubtful that they are in our country. What’s up!

- RIP Dark Sky

best weather app ever. shouts to MKBHD

- Radar and current conditions broken

Even after reinstalling the app, Dark Sky claims that the current thunderstorm will continue for the next hour. This has been its status for two days. The sky is clear.

- Nope. Don’t use it.

It doesn’t have a tropical weather (Hurricane) section but more importantly it is consistently inaccurate for my location in central Florida. I would get severe weather alerts AFTER the weather had passed. Daily rain percentages were literally never even close. And today it forecast a 0% chance of precipitation WHILE I was watching a thunderhead with lightning approaching. 🤪🔨

- Xx

Good app!

- What happened?

Bro what happened to this app? I’m in Phoenix, AZ and it sending notifications of a downpour. It’s 110 degrees and nothing but sun. Please fix this.

- He best weather app

I have tried a few weather apps. This the only one I paid for. I can use it on my iPhone and Apple Watch. It’s pretty accurate. I don’t have any complaints. It gives me what I want. Account weather.

- My Favorite Weather App

I’ve been using this app almost since the beginning. I’ve tried all of the popular weather apps and even some that are less known. I always come back to Dark Sky. I also love the app for the  watch. I was excited to hear that Apple purchased Dark Sky and I can’t wait for it to integrated into iOS.

- No longer accurate

After the Apple purchase my local temperature is no longer accurate.

- Very useful

I use this program multiply times daily. Like any weather prediction app, predictions are more accurate in the near future vs longer term. Had it for 4 years and love it! Customer service and response is excellent!

- Accurate

The app is accurate and it fulfills its purpose

- I am finally inspired by a weather app. Thank you.


- This application is spot on.

See above same to same

- Weather

Love the new view We have a lot of hurricanes in this area and would like to be able to follow them before and after

- Great until it broke

Paid user for years. Love the app for the most part. I live in Phoenix where it’s 100°+ and cloudless and keep getting notifications (2-3 per day for 2-3 days now) for rain showers. :( open the app and see nothing but heat advisories. lol

- Used to be best weather app

This was the most awesome weather app until Apple bought it!! I live in Scottsdale, AZ. It’s 108° today and the app keeps telling me there’s going to be a downpour within 30 min. We have pure blue skies! I look at the radar on the app and it appears I’m in the middle of a huge storm. There is NO storm and no rain! Then I get alerts telling me the rain is stopping. What has happened here? I’m so disappointed.

- Completely Inaccurate

Right not it’s telling me there is a storm system over Phoenix. In reality it’s partly cloudy with blue skies. It told me yesterday that there would be heavy rain for 30 minutes. It was partly cloudy with blue skies. The temperature has been correct but I don’t know where these weird precipitation reports are coming from.

- Only App I have used that lets you report the weather.

Forecasting the weather is never correct 100% of the time. Being able to report that it just started rain cats and dogs, even when the forecast says it’s suppose to be sunny, let’s me know that I am going to be receiving more accurate weather information in the moment which is awesome!

- Huge Bummer!

I wanted to find an app better than the Weather Channel App since it’s trying to make you pay for a $30.00 premium service to get all of it’s features. Then I found Dark Sky. I saw all of the great reviews and paid the $4.00 for it because I was certain it was going to be as great as everyone says it is. It’s rated #1 in the Weather section on the App Store! After about a month of owning it, I noticed that the weather (mostly the precipitation) was never accurate. I saw black clouds coming towards my house with lighting, thunder, and the smell of rain in the air. I look at the app: no rain predicted for the day. 5 minutes later, it’s down-pouring down the next 3 hours. I also dislike that it doesn’t give you much of a look into the future in the precipitation map. It gives you maybe a half-hour ahead, but that’s it. But, it gives you 6 hours of the past weather. What’s the point in that? All in all, I don’t believe the thousands and thousands of positive reviews on this app. I may delete it go back the ad-laden Weather Channel app 😞

- Great in many ways, but....

I really like this app most of the time. Accurate info. Easy to read graphics. Lots of options. Hiwever, it drives me nutty when, for unknown reasons it stops sending me my early morning notifications/daily weather report. It will work fine for weeks or even months at a time and suddenly stop sending my scheduled notifications. Resetting my settings seems to work sometimes but not always.

- Great app. Needs dates

Love this app but the need to put more than just days of the week. Please add the dates!

- Best Travel Weather App

This is my go-to app when I am on the road, especially when I am on my motorcycle. It provides accurate, timely information along the route, which helps me prepare for the weather conditions I will encounter.

- Used to be good

Loved this app when it came out years ago. Then over the past 18 months. Very inaccurate forecasting on storms (unless they are within the hour) temperatures forecasts always off by 2-3 degrees compared to other apps or my outdoor thermometer.

- Location search needs improvement

The location search is absolutely terrible in comparison to weather.gov’s search capability. It has no ability to find geographic locations aside from some lakes, only street names and towns. Please fix this. Also the radar visualization has a few problems. It’s far too slow to load and the strange color mapping and overuse of smoothing filters reduces the informative value of the actual radar display. Please allow for standard green-yellow-red color map to be an option. On the plus side, the hourly and weekly data is great. Especially the added data fields like cloud %. Alerts are also great. Finally, I think it would be great if you could have the NWS local forecast discussion show somewhere in the forecast feed.

- Bw

Wrong address every time I log on I don’t live in South America

- Dark sky

Provides the basic info in easy to access form.

- Decent app, often wrong.

There have been many times the app has told me there was “light rain” outside when the sky was crystal clear. I don’t expect the app to be 100% correct, but since I’ve paid for it there should be some expectation of reliability. Also, if I check the app on Wednesday to see what the forecast is for the weekend, it would be nice to be able rely on it. Well, you can’t. Again, I realize forecasting the weather is all guesswork, but if you tell me on Thursday it will be clear with zero chance of rain only to wake up Saturday to torrential rain storms, expect a little aggravation from a review.

- Great app

Accurate as can be. Love the radar

- Best weather app

It’s the most accurate of all I’ve used. Easy to read and easy to look at weather in a variety of places. Love it.

- Used to be most reliable weather source

Before joining Apple, Dark Sky was the most reliable weather source. As someone who works outside, most people in my industry looked to Dark Sky. But several of us have noticed it’s decrease in reliability since the app was absorbed by Apple. I wish that weren’t the case!

- Not that accurate, cannot forecast.

I thought when I purchased Dark Sky it was advertised as the most accurate, it is not. It cannot predict the next hour, let alone 24. Using eWeather HD is more accurate as well as using Storm Radar. I would say between those two I had 90% accuracy. Giving 50% for Dark Sky is being generous. Dark Sky does not know what is going on the present hour half the time. Certainly not for the day. It will change on an instant with conditions that were not stated in advance, but was with eWeather. I am very disappointed. Maybe some areas of the U.S. it is accurate, certainly not in North Carolina.

- Best weather app!

This app has it all and works really well. Highly recommend.

- Not accurate

I thought when you joined with Apple you would be more accurate. Not so much. Llproctor

- Wrong weather

The weather is wrong, even the current temperature is off by almost 10 degrees. I have been noticing this, so today I compared to a thermometer reading and another weather app. The thermometer and the other app agreed.
