Used to have it on previous company docs. But does anyone know, at what times are latest are winds available to upload to FMS?

It depends on the data provider I believe, I somehow have 0400-1000-1600-2200 in my head, but I wouldn't bet on it - I'd be curious too!

They’re the times we have listed in our documents too.

Boeing winds normally available about 25 minutes before those times listed above, IIRC.

Not sure if that's what you're asking, but the 'new' winds become available at 0000Z, 0600Z, 1200Z and 1800Z respectively.
This is Boeing.

Does this depend on the provider? For example, my company uses Lido for the OFP. Would this mean it depends on when Lido updates their wind data? One dispatcher mentioned that wind updates occur every 6 hours starting at 00:00. However, I tried updating the wind at 01:00 yesterday, and it hadn't changed from the previous one. I would really appreciate a reference for any answer. Thanks!
