What will Punxsutawney Phil predict on Groundhog Day this year? On February 2, the resident groundhog of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania will emerge from his temporary home on Gobbler's Knob to let a waiting crowd know how much longer winter will last this year. According to groundhog.org, for 125 years Phil "comes out of his hole after a long winter sleep to look for his shadow. If he sees it, he regards it as an omen of six more weeks of bad weather and returns to his hole. If the day is cloudy and, hence, shadowless, he takes it as a sign of spring and stays above ground."
