Weather underground updates

Can anyone tell me why tempest updates much slower on weather underground then my acurite station which updates every so many seconds, where as tempest updates in the minutes most of the time. Why are the time frames so apart?

Its probably because your accurite station could be using the “RapidFire” API of wunderground, this is not supported with the WF.

Why can’t Wf
support rapid fire as well?

No idea, but you can use a 3er party software like WeeWX to upload your data with rapid-fire.

Why can’t wf use rapid fire
