How often is UV index updated?

When using conditions, how often is the UV index updated? Is it updated throughout the day, or is it calculated once for solar noon and left at that?

Also looking up uvi in the hourly forecast, this seems to differ from the UV index in conditions for the same hour of day. I wondered which one would be the most accurate for the current hour of the day.

Thanks,

What's the point of these forums when 90% of questions never get a reply? Moving on to another api.

Hello,

I apologize for not getting back to you. Our forecasts are updated every 6 hours.

Could you give me an example of one that shows a difference?

Thank you,
