How often is the weather forecast data updated ?
Is there a fixed update rate, or is it completely random ? I'm asking this because i'm running my API code to fetch the forecast data every 2 hours, and sometimes the forecast data seem to vary every 6 hours, sometimes 12, but sometimes also every 4 or ever 2 hours. Can you please tell what is the exact update rate and time for forecast data.
Thanks !

The forecasts are generated on-demand, and then that newly generated forecast is cached for up to 30 minutes.
