Legend says, if the groundhog comes out today and sees his shadow, it means six more weeks of winter.

Punxy Phil emerged with light snow falling, and did NOT see his shadow. He predicted an early spring.

Between 2010 and 2019, Phil's predictions were only correct 40 percent of the time, according to the National Centers for Environmental Information.

Prior to today, since 1887, Phil has predicted spring would come early 19 times, winter would continue for six weeks 104 times and there was no record 10 times.
