NEW YORK (AP) — TV weatherman Al Roker and New York City's mayor have made up after a spat over snow and school closings.

Mayor Bill de Blasio (dih BLAH'-zee-oh) and the meteorologist met cordially on camera on NBC'S "Today" show Monday. Earlier this month, Roker chastised de Blasio on Twitter for keeping schools open during a storm that left nearly 10 inches of snow.

Roker said Monday the two chatted about the issue and both "want the best for the school kids and our city." De Blasio agreed and says letting people know about weather hazards is "something we do together."

He gave Roker a city Sanitation Department ball cap and invited him to join in next time the city needs plowing.

The National Weather Service is forecasting snow in the city Wednesday and Saturday.
