Using x2 weather progression, what's the soonest the weather will switch? half an hour? an hour?

anyone know?

I was doing some tests - Real weather, Silverstone. x15 weather progression, it started raining after 8 minutes. x2, it started raining after an hour and a half. Anyone know the logic behind how this works?

X1 progression is 1 hour. X2 is half hour each slot. So if you have 2 slots clear-rain, at 2x progression you'll have half hour clear half hour rain (there are transitioning periods).
If you have 4 slots clear-clear-rain-fog at 4x, you'll get 2x15mins of clear, 15 mins rain, 15 fog.
Unless you set it at sync to race: then the game spreads it evenly across race distance.

How many slots did you have for your tests?

I used real weather, so there were no slots. I read in previous posts that the game will create the weather slots based on the real life weather forecast, in 3 hour blocks - but it's all hearsay - unless there's documentation somewhere that explains how this all works....

Don't have that option for console.
But this may help:
