To create Observed Weather Condition entries in the project's Daily Log tool.


The Weather section can be used to track many things. For example, you might want to track any delays to the project that may be due to weather conditions or compare team productivity against weather conditions. Each day also has a daily snapshot and weather report that automatically pulls weather information for the project's location from the weather software used on your project.

Things to Consider

  • Required User Permissions:
    • 'Admin' level permissions on the project's Daily Log tool.
  • Additional Information:
    • You can create as many observed weather conditions as needed.


  1. Navigate to the project's Daily Log tool.
  2. Scroll to the Observed Weather Conditions section.
  3. Enter the following information:
    • Time Observed *: Enter the time the weather conditions were observed by selecting the hour and minutes from the drop-down menus.

    • Delay: Mark the checkbox to add a weather delay in the Daily Log, or unmark the checkbox to remove the delay. Important! Marking the checkbox for 'Delay' 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.

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