Phil predicts an early spring

February 3, 2013

Thousands of fans watched as Pennsylvania's world-famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil made his highly anticipated weather prognostication on Saturday, commemorating 127 years of Pennsylvania's unique Groundhog Day tradition.
Phil predicted an early spring after emerging from his burrow without seeing his shadow Saturday morning in the Pennsylvania Wilds.
According to holiday folklore, if the groundhog emerges in the early morning on Feb. 2 and does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring. If he sees his shadow, six more weeks of wintry weather are expected.
