Divergence of the swell vane widget and forecast

So It' 8:14pm and I'm still unsure of whether I'm getting a wave this weekend or not (I'm doubting it, so I'm buying more beer instead). The widget has updated, but the extended forecast not (this is for SE QLD).

What's up with...it ?

Thanks

Still not updated even for today's forecast? Although I think Steve was moving house this weekend?

Long story short - forecasts are updated Mon/Wed/Fri. Last Friday, Steve (our Qld/WA forecaster) moved house, so we covered the short forecasts for him. Mon (yesterday) Steve had difficulty getting online thanks to the usual Telstra rigmarole associated with new connections, combined with a long weekend. It'll be updated today... sorry for the inconvenience.

Thanks Ben. I figured it was something like that.

I see that Steve's updated the SE Qld Extended Forecast, but has the Surf Forecast page been updated? It doesn't seem to match with his Extended Forecast nor the swell forecast graph?

OK, so now I am confused. it looks as though the "surf forecast" page for SE Qld has been updated since my post above, but the "Extended Forecast" page is still showing Steve's Tuesday forecast.

So can someone please clarify if the "Surf Forecast" page is today's forecast update or not?

All good now. Disregard the above.
