Scorewatch Update - Is there a lag?

Is there a lag between the time the credit reports are updated with balances and when myfico reports it on Scorewatch. I have alert settings for balance changes and even though my credit report has been updated with the correct balance scorewatch has not sent me an update on the balance change.

same my Eliminate ID account had two collections drop and a credit card marked as paid today, but not on here. It must not update immediately, but every couple of days or so.
