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.)
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.)
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.)
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.
Want to know how warm it will be for your big vacation next July? Or if it was ominously cloudy on the day you were born? View the weather for any location up to 70 years in the past or 10 years in the future. DeLorean not required!

What’s New in Version 1.3:
It’s decorative gourd season, meatbag! To celebrate, I have a new macOS-Sierra-optimized update for you.
I ripped out my old widget and built a new one that packs in even more detail than before. Shiny!
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.)
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!
