Title: Weather Slow to Update
Post by: KRob on February 27, 2017, 10:13:02 AM
We utilize the weather component, and it seems it takes hours to update the current weather conditions.   Any idea why there's such a lag?

Thank you for updating this...Up to now, I had to use another paid weather service due to the customer complaining about the weather being stale many times.  I look forward to more improvements and bug fixes!

We're server customers -- do we get that update, too?

this is still an issue despite the update.  The only way I can get the weather to update in a timely manner (we're talking 2+ hours) is to completely reboot the machine...

I saw in the last post from admin - the update was to make sure the weather will update in 1-2 hours?  Is there no way to get it to update faster than that?  I don't expect it to be live, but 30-45 minutes seems much more reasonable than 1-2 hours.
