Description of App: 

CARROT Weather is an eerily accurate weather app that delivers hilariously twisted forecasts. There are secret locations to unlock. A time machine. And also evil penguins.

** weather app in the US! Featured by Apple, Good Morning America, NY Times, CNN, The Wall Street Journal, Wired, & more! **

Overflowing with Personality
From spooky fog to torrential downpours, CARROT’s dialogue, characters, and scenery change in… “unexpected” ways. You’ll actually be looking forward to a blizzard just to see what CARROT has in store for you!

Accurate and Detailed
Forecast.io's super accurate weather data gives you quick access to 24-hour and 7-day forecasts. Or you can swipe up for a detailed view with even more meteorological goodness. (Available worldwide.)

Rain/Snow Prediction
If the rain gods are mad at you, CARROT will show you a short-term forecast that tells you right down to the minute when it’s going to start precipitating. (Available only in the US, UK, Ireland, and parts of Canada. Everything else works worldwide.)

Notification Forwarding
If you own CARROT Weather for Mac, CARROT can forward a notification to your iOS device whenever she detects precipitation or a severe weather alert! (Note: CARROT Weather for Mac must be running to send notifications to your iOS device.)

Weather Maps
Watch in awe as the next big storm bears down on your house with CARROT's trusty radar (for the U.S.) and satellite (for the rest of the world) maps.

Time Machine

Accessibility Comments: 

This appears to be fully accessible. At first I thought that the Glance might not be, but once given a few moments to load completely it was fine.

Although I haven’t tested many, this could be my preferred weather app for the Watch right now (nudging out Dark Sky)
