We have made a number of updates to next-hour (“minutely”) forecasts in the Dark Sky API:

  • We have re-designed this system’s forecasting simulation software from scratch, which should make next-hour forecasts significantly more accurate.
  • We have done some extensive bug-hunting in this system, which should fix the most-commonly reported bugs in next-hour forecasts.
  • We have made a number of minor performance improvements to this system, which should improve average API response times by a small amount.

As usual, details may be found in our documentation.
