Punxsutawney Phil Predicts Six More Weeks of Winter

Jeff Swensen/Getty Images(PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa.) -- Are you tired of the winter weather and counting down the days to spring?  Well, if Punxsutawney Phil is to be believed, cold temperatures are going to be sticking around for awhile.

The groundhog came out of his burrow on Gobbler's Knob in Pennsylvania Thursday morning and saw his shadow, meaning that there will be six more weeks of winter this year.

Thursday's reading was Phil's 126th prognostication.  The groundhog comes out each year on Feb. 2 -- Groundhog's Day -- to determine whether or not spring will come early.
