In his video, he can be seen walking around the set chatting with fans as he gets ready to go live.

He told viewers :”You may have just heard that. We are six minutes to NBC Nightly News.”

He turned his camera to his left to show co-host Lester Holt getting ready as well as the rest of the crew.

After dropping some jokes about Dylan Dreyer’s husband Brian Fichera and his fashion choices, he continued to pan around the room to give everyone a look at the set.

“We’re going to be talking about the big winter storm in California, tornados in the midwest, snow here in the northeast.”

He added they would also be chatting about New York City’s snow possibility.

“And guess what — there is more severe weather coming.”

Jokingly he turned around with a view of Lester Holt.

“And one more view of the studio before all hell breaks loose,” he joked.

He captioned his video: “Getting ready for @nbcnightlynews with @lesterholtnbc and we have a week’s worth of #wildweather ahead.”

Fans have been concerned over Al potentially stretching himself to the limit.

Many took to his post and asked him to take it easy.

One wrote: “So funny Al. Love watching you, but isn’t this a long day for you! Take it easy, a long weekend isn’t enough. Take care.”

Another commented: “Burning the midnight oil Al. You need to take it easy.”

A third wrote: “Stay safe and warm Al. Thank you for taking on the Night Shift.”

VEST IS BEST

Meanwhile, Al jokingly mocked co-star Dylan Dreyer’s husband over his choice of clothes.

The Today Show host posted an Instagram video before appearing on NBC Nightly News with Lester Holt.

While touring the set of the show and introducing viewers to behind-the-scene staff, Al took the opportunity to reveal Brian Fichera’s fashion choices.

Brian is the husband of Third Hour co-host Dylan Dreyer who regularly hosts alongside Al.

The video on Al’s Instagram account, was filmed with just six minutes until the show went to air.

He panned to the anchor desk and said, “there’s Lester Holt getting ready and the crew getting set.”

Roker playfully told viewers: “That’s the fish over there, he happens to be married to Dylan Dreyer and he’s wearing a vest.

“That’s actually one of his quieter vests today, normally they are colors that…well let’s just say most men don’t wear. Only kidding.”

Al then laughs as Brian retorted by clapping back at his wife’s co-host.

Followers of Al praised the presenter for his humor with some saying that he “brightens” their day.

One wrote: “You are truly a bright spot in my day. So grateful for what you do & your humor is just what I need.”

Another added: “So funny Al. Love watching you, but isn’t this a long day for you!

“Take it easy, a long weekend isn’t enough. Take care.”

A number of comments urged the 68-year-old weatherman to rest with one saying: “Burning the midnight oil Al.

“You need to take it easy.”

UP AL-NIGHT

This comes as the beloved Today Show co-host has worked night and day for a number of shows despite his recent health struggles.

Over the holidays, Al was hospitalized twice for blood clots and internal bleeding.

Al’s health scare saw him off air for two months while he recovered.

Speaking on Today, he opened up about his condition, including the revelation that he underwent a gruelling seven-hour surgery to “correct a bunch of internal stuff.”

He said: “Look, I had two complicating things. I had blood clots, which they think came up after I had COVID in September.

“And then I had this internal bleeding going on, I lost half my blood. They were trying to figure out where it was.”

“And then I had this internal bleeding going on, I lost half my blood. They were trying to figure out where it was.”

He also joked that he “went in for one operation” and “got four for free”.

His wife added: “Al was a very, very, very sick man … most people didn’t know that.

“Two doctors led this brilliant team — it was a team — who had to figure out what was happening. He was a medical mystery for a couple of weeks. And it was the must tumultuous, frightening journey we have been on.

“It’s not lost on us that this is a major, major thing for Al to be here.”
