    Starting with the newest version, WWL added "night forecasts to the Daily forecast" (according to changes description). The forcasts now look out of order as they are in a unnatural progression (SAT day, FRI night, SUN day, SAT night, etc.) - see attached screenshot

    This is for Prague in the Czech Republic. Where can I find the information you request?

    The name of your selected weather station appears in the top, left corner of the main Weather Watcher Live window.

    Okay, I might sound stupid but it says "Czech Republic, Prague" and this is because I gave it that name.

    No problem. I'm assuming it's the "Ruzyne" weather station. That's the only WeatherBug weather station near that location.

    Are the days also out of order in the daily forecast?

    I guess it was Ruzyne (I'm trying to select the "closest" station in general). At the left of the main window it shows "Currently", Saturday and Sunday (from top to bottom) - so it is not out of order

    Furthermore, I tried a few other stations in the Czech Republic and even for Malaysia: the order of the slider stays the same.

    When you click the "DAILY" button at the top of the main Weather Watcher Live window, are the days out of order there too?

    Yes, "Daily" shows the same out-of-order as the slider

    In the "Stations" section of the Weather Watcher Live Options window, delete and re-add your weather station. See if that resolves the issue.

    I've done that and it doesn't solve the issue. Since the issue occurred after upgrading to 7.0.84, does that lead to any conclusion regarding a possible cause?

    Okay, the night forecasts were only added with 7.0.84 so the issue couldn't have existed in a previous version

    Well, the first step to resolving any issue is attempting to reproduce it. Here is what I see for that weather station:

    Please see what I am seeing here. Maybe the result of customization?

    The screenshot I posted shows "Sat Sep 23" - while Saturday is September the 24th. My "Windows clock" shows correctly that Saturday is the 24th. Why does WWL "think" it is the 23rd?

    If WWL thinks that Saturday is the 23rd then WWL sorts and displays actually correct. The causing factor seems to be that the date is somehow calculated or derived wrongly (the days have the wrong date (real date - 1) but the nights are correct).

    Please post a screenshot of the "NOW" section of the main Weather Watcher Live window.

    Thanks. Your "Downloaded" date format looks okay though.

    I'm wondering what the observed date format looks like. Enable the "Display time observed at weather station" box in the "Advanced" section of the Weather Watcher Live Options window and click the "UPDATE" button to refresh your weather information.

    Does the observed date format look odd?
