Today is Monday so Thursday isn’t 2 days away.
This is most likely due to the way we handle rounding. Currently in New Zealand, we are roughly 2 days, 10 hours and 30 minutes away from Thursday so the status banner rounds it down to 2 days.
So if I had set a time as well as a date it may have given the expected result. At the moment it’s a bit counterintuitive.
This is not a bug @hawk more of a discussion about rounding numbers.
