Not only the rate, but the path.
10 minutes via one HOP should be fine
30 minuets via two generic hops if necessary.

Also consider if you are going a distance just to get to an
IGate, make the path only generic in the area where
the users need it.  then add specific path to get to the
IGate.  Lots of things to consider depending on location,
network, and load...  Bob

Kim,

It has been suggested a few times that 5 minute rate to the APRS-IS,
and 
  no more than 10 minute rate to RF. This can still be debated I
guess.

As weather situation changes, reports that are over 30 minutes old in a

fast moving storm front are not timely.

Your mileage may vary also depending on the number of weather stations

around you already. Similar to the number of home RELAYS, or WIDEn-N 
digipeaters that are close by...
