Think it’ll rain? The Dark Sky Weather app knows.

And it won’t just give you a vague assumption. It’ll tell you to expect a shower that will stop in 15 minutes—and start up again 10 minutes later. And it’ll monitor your weekends as you fervently wish for a big yellow sun.

Looking a little stormy in the Caribbean today.

In short, the app gives you granular-level information about the amount of cloud cover, rain, temperature, wind speed, humidity, and UV index on an hour-by-hour basis for the coming week.

Use the Forecast tab to search for your hometown, or switch to the Map tab to literally spin the globe and seek out weather patterns moving over Budapest or Kampala.

When Dark Sky says global weather, it means global weather.

And if you’re wondering about the weather on the day you were born (or some other significant date), switch on the app’s Time Machine feature. It’s how you’ll learn that, just for example, April 1, 1976, was “clear throughout the day” in Santa Clara County.
