In the qep'a' 23 new words list
there's a bit about time travel

the examples is

*jIvIbHa'. wejHu' jImev.*

Okrand's explanation suggests that the "number + time periods ago/from now"
timestamps have some flexibility regarding what moment they're in reference
to. It seems reasonable that, in the right context, *wa'leS* could be used
to mean "the next day".
