Weather app not showing actual temperature

Hello,


New user here for the lametric time.


I noticed that the weather app it not always showing the real-time temperature from the worldweahteronline.com  website.


The temperatures from the site and on the app sometimes are 3/4 celcius different.


What can be the problem?

This is probably because the LaMetric only checks for new data every 1.5 hours. So if the LaMetric checks and the data was not updated, but the data then updates immediately after, it won’t receive that new data until it checks again in 1.5 hours. This causes the data to be very old. Our weather can change rapidly here in Topeka, Kansas so it is a little frustrating. I don’t know if there are API limits as to how many times an IP address can check the site and that’s why they don’t want to take it down to every half hour or what.
