Blue Skies brings the hyper-local forecast from the highly popular iPhone app, Dark Sky, to Windows Phone.

Using the same information as Dark Sky, Blue Skies can tell you precisely if it will rain or snow in the next hour.  Now you can know if it's a good idea to take that umbrella with you as you leave your house.  Unlike the Dark Sky app, Blue Skies brings the weather to your home screen with a beautiful live tile.

- Summary of next hour (Is not available for all locations)
- Summary of next 24 hours
- 24 hour forecast
- 5 day forecast

- Displays severe weather warnings and advisories
- Live tile with small, medium, and wide tile sizes
- Transparent live tile perfect for Windows Phone 8.1
- Ability to choose the live tile look that's right for you
- Choose the live tile update frequency to reduce battery consumption/data usage
- Choose between a light or dark theme
- Simple and easy to use

    Even though it seems to need reinstalling every so often it's still an excellent app 😃

    My goto app now weatherflow has gone

    Love the look, but after one use have to reboot phone because it will not start a second time. This happens on both my 1520 and 920. The app is unstable! Please update and fix this problem that has now been reported by several users. Can not recommend until fixed :(

    Definitely the best looking weather app on WP. Very accurate for my area. Sometimes it gets stuck and it won't open, needs uninstalling and reinstalling to fix. Please fix it. *Lumia830

    The app not only functions well without bugs or glitches, but the graphic design is attractive, with cheerful colours and good icons. In particular, I like how the large live tile flips between 5-hour and 5-day forecast, but if the tile could be made to flip more than twice, it could have the potential to display more information choices for the user. In the absence of the BBC weather app that has not been developed at the time of writing (May 2015), I think this is the best weather app currently available in the WindowsPhone store.
