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
- Detailed weather information including: precipitation, humidity, wind speed, sunrise, and sunset
- 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
- Use voice commands to get the weather
- Toast notifications for weather warnings
- Radar maps by Weather Underground and Open Weather Maps through in-app purchase

    Definitely the best looking weather app on WP. Very accurate for my area. 5*

    Beautifully designed with the right balance of information in my opinion. Many weather apps show too much data and look too cluttered.

    Really good, so useful when making plans in advance

    Very good app. However I am using Vieather instead since it's easier to see the chance of rain.
