How often is the data updated?
The weather API returns data for the next 24 hours in 1-hour intervals (10:00, 11:00, 12:00, etc..), the plugin will display the weather of the current hour (at 14:25 the current hour is 14:00). As this is subject to change, the plugin will request the next 24-hour weather updates from API every 6 hours. At midnight the plugin will fetch the forecast for the next 4 days and update the day forecasts.
What happens if the player does not have an Internet connection?
The player will store weather data in local memory for 6 hours upon first successful load. If there is no Internet connection on the first load, the plugin will be hidden. If the Internet connection is not restored after 12 hours of the previous update, the plugin will not be shown.
Where is the data coming from?
We use weatherbit API for data.
