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.

- Fixed a few bugs to make interactions faster and smoother in the map view
- Fixed disappearing colors of extreme temperatures on watch complications
The only complaint I have is that I wish the widget on the home screen would be able to show you the weather for the next few hours, instead of having to open the app for that. The weather for the rest of the week is usually pretty useless for me in the morning, so I wish there was an option to switch that around.
Very disappointed. Does not update not very accurate
Please add Siri watch face complications like the native weather app
I’ve been using Dark Sky since June of 2015. Since that date, it’s been my #1 favorite weather app. It’s major draw is accuracy. I’ve been looking extensively between Dark Sky and another popular radar app and the data offered on dark sky was vastly superior. With a storm front about to hit, the rival app displayed rainfall while Dark Sky displayed it a few miles away yet. Because Dark Sky has these hyperlocal data points from using phones barometer and sharing it with other users, they are showing details that reflect actual weather events much better. Whereas the traditional radar is interpreting clouds from a distance, Dark Sky pops in and helps to give the storm model more 3D details, which offers even better predictions. It’s grown a lot over the years and become much more user friendly and less buggy. However there is one issue that has persisted from the beginning. “Playing” the radar loads slowly and doesn’t always update properly. A lot of the time, I need to reset the view by zooming in and out. I know it’s a lot of info to load, but I’d like to see some status on what’s been loaded and ready for viewing. Keep up the great work! Best weather app!
I feel like I could just guess and be right as often as this piece of junk. There has to be a better choice somewhere
This app is great. Far better than the ones that come preloaded on phones. The forecasts tend to be more accurate, and accurate sooner than others. The various features allow for confident outdoor planning. Easy to navigate. Easy to understand. Definitely a go-to app.
Seemed cool at first with all the features. I really wanted to like this app, especially since I paid for it. But it’s been consistently unpredictable. I’ve been stuck in the rain at least 5 times the last few months because this stupid app said it wasn’t going to rain. It misses a lot!! I back using the default iPhone weather app now cause it’s more accurate A LOT more of the time. This app is nothing more than a nice appearance that seems smarter than it is.
Cant fit much info on one screen, have to tap and scroll around a lot just to get a basic report
All in all the app is good. The animated map loads in sections and take minutes to finally becomes truly smooth. Pisses me off every time I really need the interactive map.
Disappointed , I paid for this app because of reviews but it doesn’t load often even with a good signal. I don’t usually leave reviews but I’m so dissatisfied I thought I should. The radar is not very good
