Almanac Time Error
« on: May 28, 2019, 05:22:01 AM »
I have noticed my almanac data is incorrect by 3 hours or so.  For instance, today's sunrise official time is 5:56 AM but the emulator is showing 3:30 AM.  Sunset is 9:25 PM and the emulator is showing 7:00 PM.  Is this a program issue where it's grabbing the wrong timezone?  Just curious since it's causing issues with the entire emulator showing the wrong icons for the time of day, along with the wrong sunrise and sunset times.  Attached are screenshots from the WSXL emulator and the WS4000 emulator for comparison.  Thanks!

Likely has something to do with your local NWS office. See if it changes in a few days.

It's been off for years.  The odd thing is you can see how the other emulator (pulling from the same information) has the correct times for each date.

That's rather odd. I am not sure what to say here.
