Famous Groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil Prediction Revealed for 2018

Famous Groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil Prediction Revealed for 2018

That full prediction can be read on the scroll below, but it can also be easily summarized: Six more weeks of winter.

Legend has it if the furry rodent casts a shadow on February 2, Groundhog Day, expect six more weeks of winter-like weather.

The groundhog's prediction is typically contained in a short poem.

First Celebration: The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club credits The Punxsutawney Spirit newspaper with printing the first observance in 1886 followed the next year by the first trek to Gobbler's Knob. They check out the burrows of the lady groundhogs, then go back into their burrows and hibernate until around early March, when it's time to mate.

However, New York's most famous groundhog, Staten Island Chuck, left his burrow at 7:30am to find no trace of his shadow.

Based on past weather data, "there is no predictive skill for the groundhog during the most recent years of the analysis", according to a report released this week by NOAA's National Centers for Environmental Information in Asheville, N.C.

If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. When German immigrants moved to Pennsylvania, they brought the tradition with them, replacing a groundhog for the hedgehog.

Rachael Brinker traveled to Marion from Chicago to celebrate her mom's 60th birthday, which is on Groundhog Day. Given Phil's percentages, this is controversial. Well, even my best friends, they don't know.

Thousands of revelers were on hand in the town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, about 80 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, to witness Phil's annual prediction on how long the North American winter will last. It has a population of less than 6,000 and was founded in 1818. A big feast is held, and priests bless candles for the coming year on this day.

"I like the movie by Bill Murray as far as the day itself goes nah, it's winter in New England it's cold it snows it's the change of seasons that makes living around here so nice, " said Dylan Mawdsley of Holyoke.

How did Groundhog Day get started? Andie MacDowell stars as Murray's love interest and producer Rita.
