When it's mid-March and you're reaching for a shovel instead of a windbreaker, you can thank Punxsutawney Phil.
At about 7:25 a.m. this morning, the state's weather-forecasting groundhog saw his shadow according to the Washington Post, meaning we can enjoy six more weeks of winter.
Phil, the state's most celebrated rodent, has been predicting winter outlooks for the last 126 years, according to the Huffington Post. Every Feb. 2 on Groundhog Day, a groundhog emerges to a paparazzi-like scene of spectators. If he sees his shadow and returns to his hole, winter is said to last six more weeks. If the groundhog does not see his shadow, an early spring is sure to be on the horizon.
In reality, Pennsylvania's weather-predicting furry friend has about a 39 percent success rate. So, we could be reaching for that windbreaker in a few weeks after all.
