There's sometimes a push to enclose certain sections of a building before the winter, but it's usually not necessary. The bigger weather concerns for glazing are wind and moisture. It doesn't take a lot of wind to make hoisting dangerous, and any surfaces to be caulked need to be basically perfectly dry (so rain and frost are problematic). For small sections of caulking you can use heat guns or tiger torches to dry things out (depending on how it'll affect the surface finishes), but it's usually easier just to shut things down if there's a steady rain going on.

1 alarm fire (level 1 stands for working fire response, many units are specified being on hand) - Outside Storage facility (from the city's live feed) as of now.

Likely improper storage. Hopefully only minor damage. Weird amount of issues around this site lately, but being how complex it is I could see these issues popping up.

Nasty little fire that took less than 3 minutes to become quite the fireball. Was put out in under 5 minutes by TFS, some glass panel damage. This could have been ugly, there were propane cylinders stored very close to the fire.
