"Let go," said Annie. Jack pulled on his pack and followed her. What are we in for today? he wondered.

Does " what are we in for today" mean "how are we today"? Why are there two prepositions " in" and " for" in this sentence?

If you are 'in for' something (usually bad) it means that thing will happen to you soon.

I was caught stealing. I am in for a punishment when my father finds out. Our office has received 5000 orders. We are in for a busy day.

be in for sth
phrasal verb
to be going to experience something unpleasant very soon
