Punxsutawney Phil Isn't A Weatherman

NOAA fact checks Punxsutawney Phil: Keeping score: The groundhog vs. the temperature record, 2024. "Everyone's favorite groundhog predicts an early spring. Will Phil be right?"

In Gobbler's Knob, Pennsylvania, at the crack of dawn this morning, the nation's most famous groundhog Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow — meaning an early spring, according to longstanding folklore.

In 2023, Phil "predicted" a longer winter and shorter spring when official observers declared he did see his shadow.

But did he get it right? Find out more about how different parts of the country fared last year.

So, Phil has been right 3 times out of the last 10? He must be a Democrat.

  1. 3 out of 10? Dems aren't even right that often.
