Should update about once an hour (if you are lucky).  Some of the METARS in the USA do not update at night.  Sometimes they miss an update.
If I find another link I will let you know.
Good Luck.  LOL

My local airport (EGNH) doesn't update METARS after approx 1900 each evening. That's probably because the airport doesn't operate overnight, so there's no-one around to collect the data and no-one really needs it for it's real purpose anyway.

Thanks for your help
