Groundhog Day gets a sequel… as a virtual reality game

If, however, it sees a cloudy day, then spring will come early.

According to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club that started in 1887, the first Groundhog Day appeared in a local newspaper in 1886.

Just before 7:30 a.m. Saturday, Punxsutawney (puhnk-suh-TAW'-nee) Phil emerged from his burrow in Pennsylvania at sunrise and didn't see his shadow.

Traditionally, Groundhog Day helped people to predict the weather for the year ahead.

Phil's annual prediction draws thousands of revelers to the town of Punxsutawney, about 80 miles northeast of Pittsburgh, every year.

Saturday morning, Pennsylvania's own world-famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, predicted an early spring after not seeing his shadow, a prediction so rare that it has only happened 19 times in the 133-year history of Groundhog Day. Like his father, Phil stuck in a loop that sees him repeating a single day over and over again until "he learns the true value of friends and family".

The tradition of Groundhog Day dates back almost 200 years, as American settlers from Germany believed a cloudless sky would lead to an extended winter.

They are supposedly the only people who can understand what he says. If not, spring comes early. As per EW, it's called Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son, and it will arrive at as-yet-unspecified date.

To get in the mood, we suggest queuing up Bill Murray's 1993 movie, Groundhog Day.

"There is no predictive skill for the groundhog during the most recent years of the analysis", the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA) National Centers for Environmental Information states on its website.
