Almost any weather app you’ll find will offer forecasts for the next day, or even the rest of the week. Dark Sky, however, specializes in telling you precisely what will happen within the next hour. Dark Sky uses state-of-the-art weather forecasting to predict when it will rain or snow.
This iPad app pinpoints your precise location and pulls up a scrollable map of your surrounding area. If there aren’t any storms nearby but you’re eager to see radar emission in action, don’t fret. The app will say, “Clear skies are boring, tap here to see a storm” and then navigate you anywhere in the country where there are stormy skies. Shaking your iPad also gives you the chance to submit your own weather report by answering a few quick questions.
