Dark Sky offers 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.) YOUR WEATHER, DOWN TO THE MINUTE Dark Sky delivers forecasts for your precise location, giving you minute-by-minute predictions for the next hour and hour-by-hour forecasts for the next week. BEAUTIFUL WEATHER ANIMATIONS The same technology that powers Dark Sky’s predictions also allows us to make beautifully smooth radar animations. These animations show you the path of the storm, including how it moved up to now and where it’s going next. NOTIFICATIONS Dark Sky comes with advanced notification options. Receive up-to-the-minute alerts before it starts raining at your exact location, get notified of severe weather alerts (for events such as thunderstorms, flooding, hurricanes etc.) or even create your own custom notifications covering the next 24 hours for things such as temperature, wind, precipitation and more. Dark Sky will tell you what you need to know, when you need to know it. WIDGET The Dark Sky widget tells you at a glance what’s going to happen in the next hour or the next week, so you don’t even have to unlock your phone to quickly check the weather before going out. TIME MACHINE Explore weather in the past or future. Choose a date and see historical weather data or future predictions based on seasonal averages. APPLE WATCH Dark Sky looks great on your wrist. Get notifications and view the weather for the next week with the Dark Sky app built for Apple Watch. Dark Sky is available in the US, UK and Ireland.



  • Is this a joke?

    By dagame7474
    I paid $4 for this app and the weather in my area is wrong about 99% of the time. It will say it’s cloudy and raining and then I look outside and it’s clear and blazing sunlight. The only thing this app gets right is the temperature. Waste of money.
  • Don’t give up!

    The more time you spend with it the better it gets. Needs customization feature
  • Amazingly Accurate

    By GolfinRev
    It’s great to be able to see what is coming and when it should be over. It gives one a bit of comfort in a storm. I have appreciated having the information for my specific location. It has been especially useful on the golf course. I look forward to the 7:30 AM Daily Summary each day. I am disappointed when it doesn’t come.
  • Lots of bad data

    By wyndsayl
    I liked this for quite a while. Now ut seems confused. How can you have a 52% chance if rain when the highest chance hourly is 17% and all but a couple of hours are in single digits. This summer it has routinely shown my temps as 10deg less than it is, even in historical view. Seems like it aspires for the month long heatwave to end, as we all do, but that isn’t its job.
  • Accuracy has gone way down in my area

    Quality has really decreased in Skagit county Washington. Did you lose a data source?
  • Best rain forecast plus to easy to use

    By Jimcedar
    Rain chance of 40% leaves you hanging and uncertain but Dark Sky forecast the inches. .01 inch leaves you free to go outside. Easy and great
  • Great app!

    By silverfox0321
    I love this app! It has so many options and you can drill down into the weather however you like. One important drill down for me is barometric pressure. I suffer from migraines and this app is perfect to get a clear picture of what the pressure is doing. One thing I also wanted forever in a weather app was the ability to look back at history and see what the pressure was earlier that day, or on a specific day or week, and I can do that with this app. Great app, and I highly recommend it! Want to add that I am disappointed that this app is being absorbed by Apple's new weather app. Even though they say they are enhancing it, they are are removing much of the advanced functionality.
  • Not what it used to be….

    By Somewhat annoyed in Ohio
    I first downloaded this app in 2014 after hearing by word of mouth how uncannily accurate it was. It worked amazingly well as advertised for a few months, until a major version update. It hasn’t been quite right since. Supposedly, it has been raining for an hour where I am now, except not a drop has fallen. This is not an unusual occurrence.
  • Please Let Us Keep Dark Sky!

    By Noobulisious
    Dark Sky is the best free weather apps and it does not sell the users location data to data brokers. Please let us keep using it.
  • Android version is much better

    By Imagine Imagery
    The new android version of this app allows much more useful customization, like the ability to use satellite imagery of the base map, and use more conventional “legend” colors for radar etc… plus the bar and line graphs are easier to read than the only “slider” type graphs of the Dark Sky app. I wish this app was as good on my iPad as it is on my android phone.
