However, If he doesn't see his shadow, that means warmer weather is on the way.
Katie Wolf of New Cumberland, Pa., wears a groundhog costume to the 133rd Groundhog Day celebration on Gobbler's Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa. Saturday, Feb. 2, 2019.
Legend has it, if Phil sees his shadow, that is an omen of six more weeks of bad weather before he will crawl back into his hole.
First, Groundhog Day, the classic comedy from Bill Murray, is getting an official sequel.
Not much else is known about Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, so we won't know if it's any good until we hear some first-hand reviews, but it has a trailer which you can check out below. His New York counterpart, Staten Island Chuck, also predicted an early spring.
For just the 19th time in 133 years, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow on Groundhog Day morning.
Unfortunately, Phil at least doesn't have the best track record. It is the second Groundhog Day trek to Gobbler's Knob for the family.
The Groundhog Club has shared videos on its Instagram of Saturday's ceremonies.
Other towns have their own groundhog mascots as well, including Birmingham Bill in Alabama and Staten Island Chuck in NY.
That's right, Groundhog Day isn't just a movie starring Bill Murray and Andie MacDowell, it's very real, and it's a day celebrated in the United States of America and Canada with Dutch and German origin.
