No, this will not drain your battery. Dark Sky does not use GPS, which can be a big battery hog, to get your location in the background. Rather, your phone will periodically find your location via wifi and cell tower triangulation, which doesn’t have an adverse effect on battery.
Make sure you’ve given permission for Dark Sky to use your location and that you haven’t removed permission for Dark Sky to send notifications. Navigate to your phone’s Android Settings > Apps > Dark Sky and turn on both Location and Notification permissions.
On Android 6 you can visit Permissions directly to make sure Location is turned on and Notifications are enabled. On Android versions 4 & 5, make sure the “Show Notifications” box is checked.
