Dark Sky

Have you ever wanted to know if it’s going to rain soon?

Until I started biking to work, I didn’t give it much thought. Dark Sky is an app that tells me what the chances it will rain within the next hour. It won’t give you a 5-day forecast of conditions and temperatures, but it has this uncanny way of predicting precipitation.

Sure, you can view a full-days worth of predictions, but the focus is on the next hour. It also includes gorgeous high res radar images, if you’re into that.

Dark Sky is available for the iPhone and iPad. It looks gorgeous in the iPad but I just it almost exclusively on my phone.  My father is a weather nut, and I’m hoping this is the straw that finally pushes him into getting an iPhone.
