It's official: we will have a longer winter, according to America's beloved groundhog meteorologist.

Punxsutawney Phil rose from his burrow and saw his shadow Thursday morning in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, in front of a large Groundhog Day crowd as the nation anxiously waited to see what he would predict.

Phil's prediction was made official after speaking with Groundhog Club president Tom Dunkel in "Groundhogese," who then translated the prediction with the world.

Phil spotting his shadow means we will have an additional six weeks of winter here in the U.S. The prediction comes as much of the country is already dealing with another major winter storm.

  1. So if Phil deciphers winter 🥶 weeks then he can shadow or not shadow if he’ll take the seat in Congress 😆 what a day !🍿

  2. With this music I’m just thinking the groundhog is going to blow apart suddenly in a shower of gore…my bad intrusive thoughts.
