PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. -- Pennsylvania groundhog Punxsutawney Phil didn't have to suffer the snow, but still forecast six more weeks of winter at his annual Groundhog Day appearance.

Legend has it that if Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he doesn't, there will be an early spring.

Nan Moore, who's visiting Punxsutawney to witness the prediction, correctly predicted the rodent's forecast.

"He's going to see his shadow," she said. "We're going to get more winter."
