Type Quick App

This QuickApp predicts the rain in The Netherlands (and Belgium, a part of Germany and a small part of France and England) with data from the Buienradar, two hours in advance. The value of this QuickApp represents the minutes until rain. If there is no rain expected, the value is set to 0. If it rains, the value is set to 999 and the amount of rain (mm/h) is shown. 

Buienradar updates every 5 minutes with intervals of 5 minutes until 2 hours in advance. If rain is expected within the first predicted 5 minutes or less, the QuickApp assumes it is raining. 

If rain is expected or it rains, the interval for checking the Buienradar data (default without rain 300 seconds, equal to the Buienradar updates) is speed up (default 60 seconds) so the QuickApp value is updated more often.
