"Dark Sky": New Weather App Rescues Rained-Out Weddings

Wedding Style & Decor

Bridal lore has it that a rain shower on your wedding day ensures good luck in your marriage... but try telling that to your frizzled hair and soggy canapés. Weather-induced wedding despair might soon be at an end, however, if Jack Turner and Adam Grossman's new forecasting app reaches a mass audience. "Dark Sky" combines a streaming radar map with your device's GPS to pinpoint hyper-local updates accurate down to the minute—which means you'll know if, say, you have 20 minutes to get down the aisle before the sky opens up. Follow the jump to watch a video of the inventors explaining the technology behind their short-term weather predictor. —Phillip B. Crook
