uvi only returns index at noon

Matt Apr 27, 2019 08:42PM BST

Hi. I am trying to use http://api.openweathermap.org/data/2.5/uvi?lat=###&lon=###&appid=### to get the current uv index, but it seems it only lets me get the index at noon. Is this the expected behavior, or is there some way I can request current uv index?

Thanks

Hello Matt,

Yes, this API provide only noon values for non-cloudy day.

What is the use for current value if there is also forecast? Using the "Current UV" is pointless if it doesn't take in to account time of day at least...
