NBC "TODAY" weather anchor Al Roker on Monday began the fifth installment of his next attempt to set a Guinness World Records title. "Rokerthon 2021: Forecasting Your Best Summer Ever" tried to set a world record for the most people in an online weather reporting video relay, live.

As a part of the event, more than than 50 NBC affiliate stations from across the country will join Roker to provide the ultimate live national weather report. Here in Cleveland, 3News' Hollie Strano forecasted life from the Flats to give the latest updates from Northeast Ohio.

Each participating station highlighted "must-visit destinations from iconic American locations, forecasting an unforgettable summer from coast-to-coast and introducing viewers to the people and places that make this long-awaited summer one to remember."

Additionally, each forecaster described the current conditions of their location, as well as the outlook for at least the upcoming 24 hours. The forecast continued with no break between contestants and aired live on Monday's episode of "TODAY," as well as on TODAY All Day, the morning show’s 24/7 streaming channel.

The initial "Rokerthon" took place in November 2014, with Roker breaking the Guinness World Records title for the longest uninterrupted live TV weather report, which lasted for 34 hours. In the time since, Roker has set the Guinness World Records title for the fastest time to report a weather forecast from all 50 US states and the District of Columbia and visited five college campuses in five days to help college students break additional Guinness World Records titles. Last year, Roker set the record for the most people in a virtual sandwich-making relay.

Last month, Roker visited WKYC Studios -- where he used to work -- to showcase in Cleveland as a part of TODAY's "Reopening America" series. You can see highlights from Roker's visit to Cleveland in the video players below.
