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

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

    Ok app just because of the clean design. DO NOT PURCHASE ADDITIONAL FEATURES! Radar is terrible and cannot tell a difference with the other upgrade they offer!

    Good interface. Love the app and ita accuracy. Need it to be a bit more stable - though.

    Great app! One suggestion tho, put some more info on live tile, like wind speed and direction.

    Awesome app...4 stars for some sporadic crashes
  • by Phillip 8/30/2014
    Why is the 5 day forecast so wrong? 107 degrees is way too high.
  • by Michael 8/30/2014
    My favorite weather app. Glad to see a quality built"forecast.io" app. Radar could be nicer though, and it would be good if you could see the entire day at a glance.
