How can you use Hyper Local Weather information to keep you dry?
If you’ve ever left the house or office without your umbrella, and a few minutes later get soaked by the rain, then you’ll know it’s a frustrating and soggy experience!
Every Friday I share one of my favourite finds of the week — a website, tool or an app that has impressed me.
My Friday Favourite this week is Dark Sky – Hyper Local Weather Information.
How much does it cost?
The Dark Sky app costs £3.99
How can Hyper Local Weather Info help you?
EDIT: Dark Sky have been acquired by Apple and have withdrawn their Android app.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.
If you want to stay dry when you go outside (which is especially a challenge for us Brits!) then Dark Sky can help.
