Accurate and Detailed
Dark Sky’s super accurate weather data gives you quick access to your current, hourly, and daily forecasts. Or just tap anywhere for more meteorological goodness. (Available worldwide.)

If you own an Apple Watch, you can purchase the premium upgrade to receive precipitation and severe weather alerts, as well as reports on the weather for the upcoming day. If you own CARROT Weather for Mac, CARROT can forward a notification to your iOS device whenever she detects precipitation or a severe weather alert! (Note: Precipitation and severe weather alerts are only available in the US, UK, Ireland, and parts of Canada. Daily reports work worldwide.)
Watch in awe as the next big storm bears down on your house with CARROT’s trusty radar (for the U.S.) and satellite (for the rest of the world) maps.

What's New in Version 4.0
Guess what, meatbags? You're getting an all-new, crazy-powerful weather app today!
Plus, the Premium Club isn't limited to Apple Watch users anymore - now anyone can join! I’ve added a bunch of advanced features to the membership that otherwise wouldn’t be possible to offer due to their associated costs.
Check the weather lightning-fast with my gorgeous new interface. And there’s so much more meteorological goodness packed under the hood, just waiting for your taps and swipes.
Customization (Premium Club only)
Add extra data points to the hourly and daily platforms, and customize every last data point in the app to display the weather details you actually care about.
Weather Data Sources (Premium Club only)
By default, I grab my forecasts from Dark Sky’s weather data service. But meteorological science is more art than science, so now you can switch to using Weather Underground as your data source if you want a second opinion. (Note: Apple Watch users will need to upgrade to the Ultrapremium Club to use Weather Underground data on their watch, as I have to download both data sources with every update.)
Follow my clues to hunt down a brand new set of secret locations, including Chernobyl and the Titanic wreck.
Adjust my personality to your liking with options ranging from friendly to homicidal. Or be a boring person and turn my personality off completely to disable all my “fun” features.
With legends and an expanded viewport, my radar is now better than ever at helping you track oncoming storms. Premium Club members can also add additional data layers, like storm cells and temperatures, to the map.
Not only can you rename your saved locations, you can also pinpoint their exact position on a map - perfect for big cities with many different neighborhoods.
And what major redesign would be complete without over a thousand new lines of dialogue, each snarkier than the last? I’ll throw that in, too, so long as you promise not to poke my ocular sensor.
P.S. Reviews reset with each update on the App Store. If you’ve been enjoying our special time together, please take a moment to leave a review. It’d warm the cockles of my emotional coprocessor!
Mixed feelings on the update, but still one of the better weather apps
Since it started, CARROT has been one of the more playful and entertaining ways to check the weather. However, more than that could be liked about the app: first of all, it had a simple yet useful interface. When the app was first opened, it showed only the essentials: the current temperature and conditions, CARROT's opinion of the weather, and the hourly and daily forecasts. You could then swipe up for more details. I also liked how the background of the app changed with the conditions: red for hot, sky blue for nice, rain and clouds also visualized, etc. Simply put, the interface was very clean.
The update is more data heavy, but still nowhere close to apps like AccuWeather or Wunderground. Also swiping up no longer does anything, although you can tap the "NOW" section of hourly forecast to get more details. The main new thing about this app is the detail it goes into about future weather conditions that can be seen when first opening the app. The top half of the screen still is comparable the the old version of the app, the bottom half is the new weather forecast layout. The interface is still impressively clean, just not as clean at the cost of providing detailed weather forecasts.
Also new in the app: You can make CARROT be meaner to you, and the finding of Secret Locations is more fun.
Weather is better with snark
Update: the new version is incredible. The only thing I miss is being able to annoy CARROT⁵ and poke her ocular sensor. The design is great. It displays all the data you need and even more. Pay to unlock the additional features it's worth it. Being able to make changes and customize the interface is what really sets CARROT⁵ apart from every other weather app/ tracker. Set CARROT⁵'s personality to overkill it makes checking the weather worth your time, with that aside the data is very accurate and offers more information than expected. I now use CARROT⁵ exclusively. As a request it would be nice to see the hourly trend in the notification widget in a similar interval format. Or have to option to choose between which data point it shown in the widget (current, hourly, daily). Also the new secret locations will be a fun challenge to uncover. Really outstanding update.
Not a fan of the subscription..
I know it's optional, and subscriptions are all the rage lately, but charging a subscription to add mediocre features just seems tacky. I love this app and have it on all my devices and laptop and I appreciate the new features in the latest update, but seeing "premium only" features on an app I paid $4 for, makes me a little sour.
In response to dev:
I appreciate the response. I understand some features may require more money, but extending the forecast outlook by additional days, using Dark Sky and not Weather Underground shouldn't. I don't want to see "Premium Only" all over the app, when I paid $4 for it. Offer premium upgrades on first launch, and then tuck it away in the settings. Otherwise, it cheapens the experience, and makes it seem like you don't value your customers by constantly advertising upgrades whenever the app is used. What's next? Google ads? Look at 1Password, and see how they advertise upgrades within their premium app. It's subtle and unobtrusive.
