Mayor Bill de Blasio and TV weatherman Al Roker are buddies again after a public disagreement earlier this month.

On February 13th, Roker blasted the mayor for keeping schools open during the snowstorm that left 10 inches of snow on the city, even predicting that the decision would lead to a single term for de Blasio.

But appearing on the Today Show Monday morning, the two seem to have made peace.

De Blasio: Al look, I think together letting people know what's going on with the weather, letting people know how they can be safe, that's something we do together. And I want you to know we have a little snow coming up the next few days.

Roker: Oh, you've been peeking.

De Blasio: So I'd like you actually to join us, this is the sanitation department official hat, and if you'd like to come out and join us for snow clearance, this could be a new part of your contract.

Roker: I'd love to do it, my dad was a bus driver, and he used to drive a snow clearing bus, so I'd love to do this. New York's strongest!

The mayor says both men agreed they want the best for the city's school kids.
