The famous groundhog will be looking for his shadow, which is believed to signal six more weeks of winter. If the animal is unable to see his shadow, superstition dictates that spring will begin early.
Punxsutawney Phil is set to come out of his burrow at 7:25 a.m. at Gobbler’s Knob.
The town of Punxsutawney has been holding the annual event since the 1880s, according to The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, which organizes and livestreams the event each year.
