GOBBLER’S KNOB, Pa. — Famed groundhog weather prognosticator Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow Sunday morning at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, foretelling six more weeks of winter.

Phil is wrong most of the time, according to analysis by the National Climatic Data Center.

This is the 101st time he has seen his shadow since 1887. There was no record of his first prediction in 1886, the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club says on its website.
