Blue Skies brings hyper-local weather to Windows Phone

If you haven't tried out a hyper-local weather app yet, we would highly recommend it. The idea is simple: there is a lot of weather data out there, enough to be able to tell you with a high degree of accuracy if and exactly when it will start or stop raining in your location in the next hour. There have been options on Android and iOS for hyper-local weather, and now Blue Skies is bringing it to Windows Phone...

All weather apps have trouble in FL. Here we can tell you exactly what the weather will be hour by hour just by what season it is. However, its hard for models to accurately predict exactly when those rain storms will come because they come on so quick. It goes from clear to deadly thunder in literal minutes.

So no matter what it says.. 30% or 90%, we expect showers at a certain time. :)

I downloaded it and unintalled because i find that it is not as accurate as Bing Weather. Anyway, i love its simple interface so much and i hope will is more accurate here in Cambodia so that i will use it as my default weather app
