Just wondering why the "Surf Forecast" for the actual day now appears to dissappear on the actual day, whereas previously, it used to still be there, at least until the afternoon. eg, the "Surf Forecast" only shows Thursday onwards and yet it's Wednesday today, hence if new swell was coming through this afternoon, you wouldn't know about this as Wednesday's "Surf Forecast" is no longer shown?

Great point Don, we'll have a resolution for this when we implement a new system in the coming months but the reason it occurred today is because I updated the SE Qld forecast and this rolls-over the forecast graph automatically.

I do mention any new swells expected on the day in the extended notes if it's worth noting but as you can see, today is pretty average so there's no use in keeping Monday's forecast there.

In Sydney on the other hand I forecast a 3ft+ NE swell this morning with improving conditions and it's come in as such, but the graph has now disappeared because I have also updated that forecast. Here I think I should of maybe kept that forecast up a bit longer for people to see that everything came is as expected.

Cheers, Craig

Thanks Craig. I didn't check the extended forecast early this morning as I didn't expect that you would have updated today's forecast already!!!! Did you wet the bed this morning!!! ;)

Well doing a swell forecast pre 6:30am is pretty well close to wetting the bed IMO!!!

Hope ya score this afternoon then!!

Haha, 6:30am, it was updated at 8:35, there's a wrong timestamp on the notes. Just fixed.
