Did The Groundhog See His Shadow 2013, Will spring come early this year?
According to folklore, the answer hinges on a groundhog and the right weather conditions on Feb. 2.
If a groundhog emerges from its burrow and see its shadow, then six more weeks of winter weather is on the way.
But if it comes out and sees no shadow, spring is forecast to come early.
Punxsutawney, the Pennsylvania town that is home to one of the most famous weather-predicting groundhogs, Punxsutawney Phil, has been carrying on the tradition of Groundhog Day since the 1800s, according to The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club.
