PUNXSUTAWNEY, PA – The Worlds most famous groundhog weather man has made his forecast.

This (Friday) morning Punxsutawney Phill saw his shadow predicting 6 more weeks of winter.

According to folklore if a groundhog emerges from its burrow on February 2nd and see its shadow there will be 6 more weeks of winter like weather. If the groundhog doesn’t see its shadow then the spring season will arrive early.

In reality a special group on Gobbler’s Knob, a small hill outside Punxsutawney Pennsylvania decides ahead of time what Phil’s prediction will be.

According to Wikipedia Phil is accurate about 39% of the time. He has predicted more weeks of winter 103 times and an early spring only 17 times.
