    Testing WWL version 7.2.61, the user guide tells me:
    "You can use the optional [START] tag to specify which item to print first. To print the next 7 days starting tomorrow, set the [START] tag to "2".

    [DAILY LOOP COUNT=7 START=2]
    [TEMPLATE]
    Day: [DAILY DAY]
    Condition: [DAILY CONDITION DAY]
    [/TEMPLATE]
    [/DAILY LOOP]"

    This works fine, until 7pm (or there about, and yes I'm on EDT) after 7pm the forecast starts with the day after tomorrow, unless I change START=2 to START=1!!?? Is this by design, an UTC issue or am I missing something?

    Thanks, Johan

    Edit: Original I wrote 6pm but meant to say 7pm

    In the evening, the first day in the daily forecast is tomorrow. If you enter "2" as the start value, that means your first day will then be the day after tomorrow. The "2" means the 2nd day in the daily forecast.
