How can Hyper Local Weather Info help you?

Dark Sky - Hyper Local Weather InformationDark Sky is an app that you can use on Android and iOS smartphones, tablets and wearable devices.

EDIT: Dark Sky have been acquired by Apple and have withdrawn their Android app. Android users, I’d recommend checking out Arcus Weather – The Most Accurate Android Weather App.

It does one thing – keep you updated on your local weather reports – and it does it really, really well.

The term “hyperlocal” means a small geographic area — your village, suburb or estate.

The Dark Sky app uses to-the-minute weather forecasts to notify you when it will start — and stop — raining. How can this help you? Well, Dark Sky can let you know when to pack an umbrella or postpone your trip accordingly. It’s really useful!

I have been really surprised at how accurate Dark Sky is for me. I love to hold regular walking meetings, and Dark Sky has notified me of impending rain with a high degree of accuracy.
