    This requires you to finish a stage in a daily, weekly or monthly Community Event where the conditions are "Dry". The symbol for these conditions is a sun - just a sun, no cloud. However, the achievement description doesn't say that the stage must also take place in the middle of the day. It unlocked for me after finishing the third stage of a Weekly Event. The first three stages were all in Dry conditions but the first was in the morning and by the time the third stage took place it was around midday.

    The achievement will unlock at the end of the stage, you do not need to wait until the event is over and the next one starts like some of the other Community Event achievements.

    Sp33dyKatThis week's "Group B RWD Rally" Weekly Event has a sunny leg "Kil Sjo-Langt Backlopp (Upp)". I popped this achievement immediately after finishing this, the 5th leg out of 6. If this is still the week of Feb 22, 2021 - go grab it now! wink

    Cnacu6oIn the current monthly community event (June 2021), the very 1st race has a sun symbol without it being accompanied by a cloud symbol.
    I finished the stage at ~12:15 PM local time (there were ~45 min. to daily round renewal) and got the achievement.

    So, the guide Destrier works great if there is a community event avaliable, however half the time, there doesn't seem to be. Upon further inspection, and I'm not sure if this has always been the case or not but as of today (2nd March 2021) the achievement description on the Xbox App for Windows 10, on Xbox consoles themselves seems to be slightly different that what TA mentions. On Xbox it states the following:

    "Finished a Stage in sunny conditions in Community Events or Clubs"

    So to make this super easy for those who decided to sign up for a Racenet account when they first opened the game:

    Go to https://www.dirt4game.com/

    Click the top right where it says "PROFILE", and then login, choose your Microsoft account as the login option and follow the instructions/accept the EULA/T&Cs. Once done, you should end up on the homepage again.

    Click top left under "Online", followed by "Clubs", then on the next page you should be able to hit "Create a Club". Choose whatever name (this has to be unique) and handling style you like, the rest can be left default. Scroll down and click "Next".

    You'll be thrown into creating your first championship, so click the massive "ADD EVENT" button.

    Now choose whichever gamemode, country & vehicle restriction you would like on the left side, then move over to the right side, make the length as short as possible, and the complexity and low as possible.

    Next comes the part you should pay attention to. Select Midday in the "Time of Day" section, and Dry in the Weather Section.

    Scroll down, past the stage preview and just click "Save Event".

    On this next screen, just press "Continue to Step 3", followed by "Done" on the next page.

    Now, open up DiRT 4 on your console, navigate to "Events", "Multiplayer", "Clubs", and wait for it to download the data. You should see your club that you just created show up. Now just load into that stage, drive through it as fast or slow as you'd like and once you get awarded the XP from completing it, you should have the achievement pop.

    Although this looks like a lot, its about a 3 minutes process on the website and another 5 minutes in game with loading screens etc.

    This is one of my first guides so please let me know how I did and comment on why, if you did downvote it.
