NEW YORK (AP) - Al Roker didn’t have this honor in his forecast.

Mayor Bill de Blasio surprised the beloved “Today Show” weatherman on his 60th birthday Wednesday and declared it Al Roker Appreciation Day across the city.

De Blasio presented Roker with a mayoral proclamation featuring a photograph of the home where Roker grew up in St. Albans, Queens.

De Blasio’s appearance came during the second hour of the NBC morning show.

The program aired a retrospective on Roker’s life and career and had other surprises planned to mark the start of his seventh decade.
