Groundhog Day 2021: Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter

Feb 2 2021, 10:02 am

Well, it’s that time of year again, Groundhog Day (although it has felt that way for most of 2020…) And Punxsutawney’s beloved groundhog has predicted six more weeks of winter for 2021.

As the story goes, if a groundhog sees its shadow on February 2, you’ll want to keep warm indoors as that means six more weeks of cold winter weather. No shadow? that means we’re in for warmer weather very soon.

Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow this morning, meaning six more weeks of winter.

Punxsutawney Phil did such a great job this year, that his handlers treated him with some cookies.
