SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - NBC’s Al Roker will be in North Dakota and South Dakota next week as he attempts to set the world record for the fastest time ever for reporting the weather from all 50 states and the District of Columbia.

Roker will kick off his world record attempt Friday in Hawaii and plans to hit all states and D.C. in just one week. He will be in Fargo, North Dakota, and Sioux Falls on Monday.

Roker will travel by planes, trains and automobiles. Roker’s weather reports will air across NBC platforms, including local affiliates, which in southeast South Dakota is KDLT-TV.

Last year, Roker completed a 34-hour marathon weather forecast that was certified by Guinness World Records as the longest continuous live weather broadcast.
