Rokerthon returns! Al Roker goes for world record with nationwide weather reports

Update 11/6: Rokerthon is underway. Click here to follow Al's journey.

Get ready for Rokerthon 2! TODAY's weatherman-and-more Al Roker plans to take America by storm.

At the inaugural Rokerthon last year, Al set a Guinness World Records title by delivering the weather live for 34 hours straight. This time, he's going for another record.

Al plans to set the fastest time ever for reporting the weather from all 50 states — going coast-to-coast and everywhere else in just one week. And it's all for a good cause, too.

While Al makes his way across the country's weather map by planes, trains and any other vehicle he can catch, Rokerthon 2 will support Feeding America, an organization devoted to feeding those in need across the nation.

The event kicks off in Hawaii on Friday, Nov. 6, and wraps up with Al's return to Rockefeller Plaza on Friday, Nov. 13.

Fans can also get involved by bringing non-perishable items to the plaza during show hours from Nov. 8 through Nov. 13. The food will be donated to help feed those in need.

"I know Al is ready for the country," TODAY's Matt Lauer says in the promo for the event. "I don't know if the country is ready for Al."

We'll soon see!
