Rokerthon Is Back: ‘Today’ Show’s Al Roker Prepares to Reach World Record When Visiting 50 States in 1 Week

Al Roker is headed to your neck of the woods!

NBC's 'Today' show announced that one of America's favorite weatherman is traveling out on the road to deliver the forecast in all 50 states. The catch is he has to accomplish this mammoth task in seven short days.

"Someone needs to stop him before he hurts himself," 'Today' co-host Savannah Guthrie joked in a new sneak peek. "Al, nobody else but you could do this or would even want to."

Natalie Morales added, "I don't think he'll have time to shower."

Last year Roker set a Guinness World Record title by delivering the weather live for 34 hours straight. This time, however, he has his eyes set on a new record for the fastest time to report a weather forecast from all 50 US states and the District of Columbia.

Rokerthon 2 will kick off Friday morning live in Hawaii. He will then travel by planes, trains and automobiles before his final stop at Rockefeller Plaza in New York City on Nov. 13.

"Al always takes on these larger than life challenges," Matt Lauer shared. "I know Al is ready for the country. I'm not sure the country is ready for Al."

Rokerthon 2 kicks off on "Today" Friday morning at 7 a.m. only on NBC.
