Create Observed Weather Log Entries

Also available on    

Objective

To create an entry in the Observed Weather Log of the Project level Daily Log tool.

Background

The Weather Log tracks any delays to the project that may be due to weather conditions. Each day has a daily snapshot and weather report that automatically pulls weather information for the project's location from Dark Sky.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permission: 'Admin' on the project's Daily Log tool.

Steps

  1. Navigate to the project's Daily Log tool.
  2. Click Create Daily Log.
  3. Select the Observed Weather Log from the drop-down menu.
  4. Scroll to the Observed Weather Log.
  5. Enter the following information by clicking in the field to edit it.


     
    • Weather Delay: Select YES to add a weather delay in the Daily Log. Select NO to remove the delay. Important! Selecting 'Yes' triggers the system to send an automated weather delay alert to project users who have enabled weather alert notifications. See Enable Weather Delay Alerts By Phone or Email. These notifications work as follows:

      • For weather delay alerts by phone, the system dials the user's telephone number. Then, the following occurs:
        • If the user answers the call, a robotic voice alerts the user of the weather delay and identifies the project by name.
        • If the user declines the call, the system alerts the user of the weather delay by leaving a voice mail message.
        • If the user misses the call, the system alerts the user of the weather delay by leaving a voice mail message.
      • For weather delay alerts by email, the system sends an email message to the address on the user's record.
        Note: The system does NOT send an alert when a user selects 'No' to remove or cancel a weather delay. 
    • Sky: Select from the drop-down menu observations made of the sky that day.

    • Temperature: Select from the drop-down menu the approximate temperature on site that day.

    • Average: Enter the average temperature observed during the workday. 

    • Precipitation: Enter the observed precipitation for the day.

    • Wind: Select from the drop-down menu the observed wind conditions.

    • Ground / Sea: Select the status of the ground or sea around the project. You can only enter information for either the ground or the sea.

    • Calamity: If the job site was subject to a calamity that day, enter the type by selecting from the following from the drop-down menu: earthquake, fire, flash flood, landslide, tornado, hurricane, snow, other.

    • Comments: Enter any comments that may be needed to further describe the entry. Pull the bottom right corner to expand the field.

    • Attachments: Attach any additional files to the log entry. Click Attach File(s) to select a file from your computer, or drag-and-drop the file from your computer to the gray area designated by Drag and Drop your File(s). Once you save your item, users will be able to click the attachment and view the attachment in Procore's document viewer.
