Punxsutawney Phil in 2018.

The groundhogs have spoken...

Punxsutawney Phil, the most famous groundhog, didn't see his shadow, predicting an early spring.

Wiarton Willie is predicting an early spring.

Shubenacadie Sam predicted six more weeks of winter.

It is said that if the groundhog see's their shadow due to clear weather, it will retreat to its den and winter will persist for six more weeks, and if it does not see its shadow because of cloudiness, spring will arrive early.
