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

- 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

- Choose between a light or dark theme
- Simple and easy to use

    Really quality app. Just needs an option to let user choose less then 3 hours to update the tile...doesnt seem necessary for the weather but it is for the location. Besides that its a premium app.

    I've paid £1.29 for the enhanced features including the 1 hour weather refresh. It worked for 2 weeks, but now has reverted back to the 3 hour trial mode. Please fix this bug, and I want what I paid for!
