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.)

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.

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 havent 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 whats going to happen in the next hour and the next week, so you dont 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.

Good app, but kills the battery and no Apple Watch Complication

I really like this weather app, but it is detrimental to my battery. And another major flaw is that it offers no Apple Watch complication. I would like to glance at the weather on my wrist without pulling out my phone. You have an Apple Watch app, which looks good, but you offer no complication for it.

Doesnt follow you

The app is great. Best weather app. Needs one MAJOR update. The app keeps reporting the last location that was open. It doesnt follow you even if background refresh is on.

I depend on this app

I work in Wildland fire and spend A LOT of time outdoors as a consequence I need to know not just if its going to get windy or dry today but when thats going to happen. Although the forecast can change it does give me a potential trend and more often than not, nails it.


Awesome only thing i can say, i was looking for an app that actually told me when it would rain. Ik its not always gurranteed but its closer than any other app. I can dress accordingly.

Add more places

Why I cant add more Cities to this app?

Dark sky

Best weather app you buy!
