Weather on demand

How often is the data on the Weather on demand channel updated, is it real time or periodically updated?  Are the current conditions in real time?  It seems like the Radar and Satellite videos don't change for at least and hour.  When there is bad weather in the area that is not sufficient.

Accuweather updates temp/conditions every hour just like on their website, but radar is updated every 15 mins if you play it in motion.  The static picture is not always the current conditions, it will be after the motion stops.

 

For bad weather, try a local channel, most areas cover things very good in bad weather.  Also can use accuweather.com to possibly drill down to the metro area that we can do here in metro Detroit and many other areas around the country. :smileywink:
