    50% accurate

    Mid july 2020. I have used this app for 6-12 months. I have used this in 2 cities with very different daily climates. It is pretty accurate and useful in Charlotte NC, and I really enjoy the doppler radar. It is usually off by 7-12 degrees in Missoula MT (when compared to experience and The Weather Channel app. I reported this a month ago but I have to believe they have known about this much longer. It really makes me question the algorithm.

    I don’t know why this app has 5 star reviews

    I’ve had this app for a few years and it is almost never correct with its forecasts. Their forecasts update to the minute, so if it all of a sudden becomes sunny, it tells you it’s sunny, but I obviously already know that. The forecasts are what I need and they are not reliable whatsoever.

    It’s ok but lacks

    The app is generally ok and quite thorough. The price is reasonable but helpful features would be the ability to sync from website to respective devices. Also the ability to search by GPS would be useful. Tie that to Apple Maps, where you can use GPS, and then it’s a five.


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.
