Punxsutawney Phil Did Not See His Shadow

If you’re hoping for an end to winter, Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow Saturday morning, which is supposed to signify an early spring.

Phil’s accuracy rate is only around 39 percent. Last year he did see his shadow and predicted 6 more weeks of winter and we all remember how that turned out. February and March of 2012 were two of the warmest months on record.

There are some long range models that do point to some wamer than normal weather over the next few months so maybe Phil is onto something.
