Craig, Actually, the most recent forecast is available under the "Latest" link. The Best forecast is a hybrid collection across multiple forecast runs; for each time in the time series, the collection looks for the model output field with the smallest forecast offset. In an ideal case, this gives you the analysis fields up to the present time, and then gives you the most recent forecast. Does this help?
