How early should I shop Southwest Airlines for "Wanna Get Away" class fares?

I'm normally buy tickets about a month in advance, and now I'm starting to notice that a lot of the desirable flights- nonstops or one stops during reasonable hours are "sold out" of the lowest class of fares. Is this a temporary thing due to their capacity problems with the Max grounding, or is about a month a bad time to buy tickets, as opposed to 6 months or a week or two weeks or whatever. Wondering if the "sold out" fares suddenly become not sold out when they realize shortly before the flight that not enough people are going to pay hundreds more for the exact same seat?
