Dark Sky Weather
This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.
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.
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.
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.
What's New in Version 5.3.3
Update to support the new iPhone X.
I’ve used Dark Sky for years. It’s one of the essential apps on my iOS devices and I heartily recommend it to everyone I know.
Sometimes the rain forecast system seems like magic. It’s saved me from a soaking numerous times. For example: one time I was out with friends. We’d finished at one bar and were deciding whether or not to make a run through the rain to another bar. I checked on Dark Sky: rain would end in 5m. So we just waited, and almost to the minute the rain ended and we strolled to the next place. They immediately purchase the app.
When I’m trying to decide what I need to take when I run out for lunch I check Dark Sky. Do I need an umbrella? Jacket? Etc
The hourly forecasts are excellent: my girlfriend and I are able to plan our running outfits so we’re comfortable.
All-around: just a great weather app with a clean, simple interface. I don’t use or need any other weather apps.
Best radar by far.
If you drop a few bucks on this app you will not regret it. I've been through all the other apps but this radar is the top of the line. I use it daily and if you need to know anything about the weather in your area this is your app. This is not full of the fluff that other weather apps have like videos of people's pets and stuff like that, just the weather and forecast. I love it and so will you if you try it.
Simply Accurate! 👍👍👍👍👍
UPDATE: Ihave used Dark Sky for several years and continue to find it to be accurate and simple to use. It's current and forecast weather are easy to read, and its ability to forecast the start of rain ☔️ within minutes at the location where ever I am remains uncanny! No, it's not the most gorgeous of screen pictures, I have other apps for that, but it is the best use of my iPhone 6 screen by far.
