This morning (June 21st), News Center Maine meteorologist Ryan Breton will be joining The Today Show's Al Roker, and dozens of other weathercasters from around the country, in an attempt to set a new world record for the "longest online weather reporting video relay".

According to a post on his Facebook page, Breton's "leg" will be at around 8:14 AM.  He is not entirely sure, but there is a chance he could make it on the Today Show itself.  That means he'd be featured on hundreds of NBC affiliate stations across the country.

He'll be hanging out at the Portland Head Light and his goal will be to talk weather (and about our amazing state) for three minutes.
