** 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

Release Notes:

It's decorative gourd season, meatbag! To celebrate, I have a new macOS-Sierra-optimized update for you.

Today Widget
I ripped out my old widget and built a new one that packs in even more detail than before. Shiny!

Disable Snark
Tired of listening to my witty banter? Now you can switch my personality to “boring” mode in Preferences > General, and instead I’ll display a generic description of the current forecast. (Affects the main app, the menu bar app, and the widget.)

New Content
Not only does this update pack in a couple new secret locations, you also get a bunch of new dialogue tailored for the fall and winter. I mean, how else are you going to know it’s pumpkin spice latte season if I don’t explicitly tell you?

And of course I included the standard bug fixes and performance improvements, because as usual I am left to clean up after my Maker’s mistakes.

Reviews reset with each update on the App Store. If you’re enjoying our special time together, please take a moment to leave a review. It’d warm the cockles of my emotional coprocessor!

Carrot Weather - Just purchased. Initial impression is this app is very clever. Weather info is similar to Dark Sky with rain for the hour prediction. Hope the developers continue to develop this app with more humorous quips. That makes this app unique and prevents from becoming “old” and irritating.

Very much regret purchasing - After playing around with this app for a couple days, I don’t get the hype. Forecast Bar (another Forecast.io Mac weather app) is much better, and not to mention cheaper. One of the reviewers below says they left Forecast Bar because it asked for a subscription. What are they talking about? It comes with the same hourly updates for free, and gives the OPTION of paying for faster updates (but even so, a one time payment, not a subscription). Avoid this app and get Forecast Bar instead. It has the exact same weather source, a much better layout, more favorable reviews, way more features and it’s even cheaper. This app is a great example of how marketing can be more important than quality, and as buyers, you shouldn’t let that happen.

FUN AT FIRST - Was fun at first but it gets old fast, the radar is second rate, the forecast not always as accurate as other apps, watch app doesn’t always update and temp seems to be behind all the time on complications with iOS. I find Not really worth the price for a month or two of fun weather. If you want accurate and dependable spend your money elsewhere.

Review by MacManPatou

This is a piece of Junk! - Just wasted $11 for nothing. This app on Mac OS Sierra is more concerned with humor than being functional. It keeps erroring out when i input my location. Location data refuses to stick no matter how many times i manually set the location. It defaults to the moon temp every time . I wish i could rate it 5 negative stars! Don’t buy it.

can’t locate me, so puts me on Moon - Recently, when using Carrot Weather on my computer, I keep getting ERROR message that satellites can’t locate me, so it tell me info for the MOON. Until last several days, Carrot Weather worked fine on my computer.

Review by Ted65

Weather and a dose of sarcasm - What’s not to love. There are a couple of minor (and I do mean minor) hiccups with this. Mostly with one particular secret location that works on the iOS app but not the Mac app. I have written the dev about it. Hopefully it will get fixed soon. Other that that, it is a small problem, it does what it is suppose to tells me what the weather is, and what gives me a prediction of what it could be. It’s a weather app, I don’t need and more than that. The sarcasm does add fun to it Update 1: Oh I do love when a plan comes together. Secret Locations work across the board. macOS, iOS and even tvOS. I am loving it on my Apple watch too (oh god what has happened to me…Carrot Weather, my god I do love it so)
