Al Roker is going to attempt to break a Guinness World Record.

No, not for longest beard or most bunny hops in 30 seconds. The "Today" show weatherman will try to break the record for longest uninterrupted live weather report broadcast.

The current record stands at 24 hours. Roker wants to do it for 34 hours.

Yes, 34 hours of non-stop, continuous weather reporting right in the comfort of Studio 1A.

"Rokerthon," as NBC News is calling it, will begin Wednesday, Nov. 12, at 10:00 p.m. ET, and end Friday, Nov. 14, at 8:00 a.m. ET.

We're taking bets now. Will he do it?
