Description
The Dark Sky-powered weather app with hilarious yet accurate forecasts.

** Featured by Apple, The New York Times, Good Morning America, 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 Insanely Detailed
Dark Sky's super accurate weather data gives you access to 24-hour and 7-day forecasts. And there's enough meteorological goodness packed inside to satisfy even the most demanding weather nerd. (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.)

Notifications
Whenever CARROT detects precipitation or a severe weather alert in your area, she'll ping you with a notification. And if you own CARROT Weather for iOS, she can even forward the notification to your mobile device when you're away from your desk! (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.

Quick-Access Mini Window
CARROT's Mini Window resides in the menu bar and lets you view the short-term, hourly, and daily forecast with a quick click or keypress. You can even detach the Mini Window from the menu bar and keep it in front of your other apps.

Time Machine

Accessibility Comments: 

This is a great app with a wonderful sense of humour
. the one thing I noticed that the app when navigating with voiceover is not very intuitive. for example, like other weather apps for the mac, all the information is displayed streamlined, meaning all one after another. this ultimately means that you see all the temperature displayed for the current weather, as well as for the long term forecast
, but it is difficult to tell for some users which day the temperature may correspond to. Other than that, it is truly remarkable and by far the best and most accessible weather app for the mac to date.

Usability: 

The app is fully accessible with VoiceOver, but the interface could be easier to navigate and use.

Other Comments: 

I highly recommend this app for folks wanting an accessible weather app on their macs.
