[Groundhog Day] watch Live Stream: Watch To See If Punxsutawney Phil Sees His Shadow


The day is finally here! On Feb. 2, Groundhog Day, we’ll find out if there’ll be six more weeks of winter…or if we’ll get an early spring (*crosses fingers*). Of course, it’s all in the hands of Punxsutawney Phil, the official groundhog whose shadow determines what kind of weather is to come. Watchit all go down here!Mother Nature’s future is all in your hands,Punxsutawney Phil! Just like every year, the famous groundhog will emerge from his burrow on the morning of Feb. 2 to see if his shadow appears. If it does, he’ll run back inside, and there’ll be another six weeks of winter. If he doesn’t, he’ll stay out…because spring is comin’!Coverage from Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania begins around 6:00 a.m., but Philisn’t expected to come out untilaround sunrise, which is estimated at 7:25 a.m. It’ll only take a few moments to determine whether or not Phil’s shadow is visible, so tune in, or you’ll miss it!Relive Groundhog Day 2016 HEREDon’t listen to the predictions of any of thoseimpostor groundhogs out there, either! Punxsutawney Phil is the onlyone who can give an accurate reading. The Groundhog Daytradition began in the U.S. 130 years ago, and even though groundhogs only have a life span of 6-8 years, the folklore claims Phil hasbeen kept alive thanks to a “magical punch,” which he drinks every summer and gives him another seven years of life.Phil has made 129 predictions since the start of Groundhog Day, and he’s only not seen his shadow 18times. Those aren’t very good odds for us getting an early spring, huh!? Phil’s accuracy rate is only 39%, though, so he’s been wrong before. We’ll just have to wait and see!
