_-_-_- so take it

Weather forecast

Weatherman: Well, oh, listen and be quiet.

Man: Oh, I’ll listen and be quiet.

Weatherman: And don’t interrupt.

Man: Oh, yeah. I won’t interrupt.

Weatherman: Will you sit down?

Man: I’ll sit down.

Weatherman: Good evening ladies and gentlemen. Here is today’s weather forecast. It’s not very good; I’m afraid there’s a storm coming up.

Man: Oh, you said, you predicted there would be sunshine for the rest of the week.

Weatherman: Well, you can never be sure what’s going to happen anyway. Don’t interrupt. As I was saying, there is a storm coming up because there is warm air moving from the south which is
meeting cold air from the north.

Man: So, that’s why we have storms. Warm air is meeting cold air?

Weatherman: Yes. As I was saying… what was I saying?

Man: You were talking about the storm.

Weatherman: Oh, oh, yes. There’s a nasty storm coming, I’m afraid.

Man: Which means that it’ll be stormy and windy and rainy with lots of thunder and lightning?

Weatherman: Yes. Cloudy, rainy, windy, with lots of thunder and lightning. Would you sit down? Who’s doing this weather forecast, you or me?

Man: You are. You are the weatherman, so take it.

Weatherman: Thank you. And now for today’s temperatures.

Man: Temperatures?

Weatherman: Yes, how hot and how cold it would be. As usual, I give the temperatures in both Fahrenheit and Celsius.

What does “so take it” mean in this dialogue?

Thank you

The man returns the floor to the weatherman and tells him to continue with the forecast.
