"today is dark" should be accepted.

No, it shouldn't because that doesn't make sense in English. Today is overcast, or today is cloudy, but if it's dark, it's night.

No native English speaker would say "It's dark today." Certainly no English-speaking weather person... Perhaps "It's overcast today." ???

I tried overcast (9/21/18) & it was not accepted. I'm not sure if it's a acceptable translation for dark, but it seems more natural to me. I'll report it & see what happens

"It's dark today" is not a sentence that makes sense in English. It is overcast, it is cloudy - those make sense and are common usage. Duo has an obligation to teach in a way that makes sense in either language. Maybe in Spanish "Está oscuro hoy" would be correct usage, but their translation is not common usage - generally if it's dark, it's night, not day - therefore they should accept translations that would be commonly used in English.

Why not "hace oscuro hoy"

Dark is not an English word used to describe a weather condition!
Duo should get real and accept more appropriate weather related words like "cloudy', "overcast", "hazy", "grey".
Perhaps they could watch a few weather broadcasts in English.

Sorry but "It's dark today" is just fine
