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

    Nice clean layout. I like the most of the recent updates but it's annoying when it sends out false alerts. I got a weather alert for storm but the forecast shows clear skies for next 48 hrs

    I've found the rain predictions on this app quite accurate. As someone who bikes to work, I really appreciate knowing what to prepare for. And the app design is excellent.

    This app keeps me well informed of weather conditions no matter where I am. Just crossing a county line I am informed of conditions for that area. Keep up the good work.
