Dark Sky Weather

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 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, 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.


Not the most accurate

I use Dark Sky predominately to get a fast check of the daily temperature. For more detailed weather information I will go to Accuweather. Too many times has missed of been late in showing current weather forecast. ie: I see it is raining outside right now and dark sky shows overcast.

Excellent weather app, w one request

I’ve been using this for years now and love it. My only wish for it is that we could rearrange the buttons in the daily forecast view. I'd like to have Temp, Precip %, & Wind be the first three buttons instead of always having to scroll over to get to Wind. Hope to see it!

Great App

Dark Sky is a great app. I use it all the time to check the weather. Do not delete this app without providing something as good as or better.

Great pinpoint weather

My favorite weather app.

Best Weather App Out there!

Love this app!


No widgets? This is a premium app made by apple. What purpose does widgets have on my device if apple isn’t utilizing it.

The only weather app you need!

Easy to read, in depth, awesome radar. A must have app!!

Used to be good…

When this came out it was laser-accurate—one of my favorite apps. Steadily spiraled down hill over past few years. Last few snowstorms didn’t show up on DS with any snowfall, timing, or accumulation, yet every other weather app showed when snow was going to start, and reasonably accumulation estimates. It is now essentially useless and can’t be trusted.

Not good

This app is wrong almost every single day since it got colder. It’s nowhere near correct for rain, snow and anything else lately. When I first got it the app was great, but in the last month it’s horrible. Waste of money
