Weather feed update frequency

Hi folks,

How often is the weather for the US updated? i.e. <lastBuildDate>Mon, 15 Dec 2008 8:31 am EST</lastBuildDate>

TIA

  • I believe if you use the date within the yweather:condition node that should give you the accurate "late updated" forecast. For instance, it's currently 8:10am PST and mine gave me the following result:
    <yweather:condition text="Partly Cloudy" code="30" temp="58" date="Wed, 03 Jun 2009 7:53 am PDT" />

    So it was almost 20 min ago.

    Hope that helps,

  • Right, which is what I'm getting too.

    My question is this: Your current weather shows: Wed, 03 Jun 2009 7:53 am PDT

    What will it be next? i.e. will it be updated every 30m? 1h? etc.

    Thanks, Jonathan!

  • Looks like it's hourly - just checked
