Google Weather API reporting wrong forecast

Google Weather API is reporting the current conditions but yesterday’s forecast. Hopefully the matter will be resolved shortly. Here’s an example of the data stream.

  </forecast_conditions>
  </weather>
  </xml_api_reply>

Notice that the forecast data is from 4/19/2009 but that the current conditions are 4/20/2009.
