Thanks, that helps.  For anyone with the same problem, I found the Wikipedia:Purge page thanks to this response, which describes the purge function in more detail.

For greater efficiency, pages are cached. You can force to render the
latest version by purging the page (just add ?action=purge to the url),
that's a bit faster than a null edit.

The fact that it sometimes work and sometimes not may depend on the
exact time the page being viewed was cached.

You may try {{#time: F}} {{CURRENTDAY}} in case it performs better.
