I use Dark Sky all the time. I probabably look at it 5-8 times a day. The predictions are uncannily accurate, especially for rain - even on an hourly basis. I especially like the radar screen. I am trying to get a feel for Celsius, so I have it set for that. This, after the news, is about the best app on my phone.

It has become very inaccurate
I build homes and knowing the weather forecast is critical. The last couple of months, however, I have found the forecast to be wildly inaccurate. I’m looking for a new app to see if I can get better results. Not sure what changed. This has been my go-to app for a couple years.

Dark Sky: Good and Not Self-Consistent
No weather app is perfect. However, each should be self-consistent. Re. precipitation in Seattle, Dark Sky is often inconsistent, such as 24 hour by hour view vs Today by hour view and in terms of accumulation by hour when added up over 24 hours vs the day’s summary.
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. 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. PUSH NOTIFICATIONS 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. TODAY WIDGET 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. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based off of seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH 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.
