Punxsutawney Phil Says Six More Weeks Of Winter

Pennsylvania’s most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, has “predicted” six more weeks of winter after seeing his shadow at dawn Thursday.

Thousands of people gathered overnight to await the forecast.

“It’s mighty cold weather, you’ve been braving. Is it more winter or is it spring that you’re craving? Since you’ve been up all night and starting to tottle, I, Punxsutawney Phil, shall not dawdle,” the proclamation read. “My faithful followers, I could clearly see a beautiful, perfect shadow of me. Six more weeks of winter, it shall be!”

Records dating to 1887 show Phil has now predicted more winter 103 times while forecasting an early spring just 18 times — including last year.

There are no records for the remaining years.
