Al Roker didn’t have this honor in his forecast.

Mayor Bill de Blasio surprised the NBC weatherman on his 60th birthday Wednesday and declared it Al Roker Appreciation Day across the city.

Appearing during the second hour of the morning show, de Blasio presented Roker with a mayoral proclamation featuring a photograph of the home where Roker grew up in Queens.

Another surprise was Vice President Joe Biden, who sent his wishes in via video and offered Roker a weatherman position in his administration if he ran and won the presidency in 2016.

“Well, I think that’s a reason for you to run right there,” Roker responded.
