February 2 :: Groundhog Day!

Tomorrow, February 2, is Groundhog Day in America! 

Many people believe that Punxsutawney Phil can predict the weather on this day. On the morning of February 2, the famous Punxsutawney Phil comes out of his burrow at Gobbler's Knob in Pennsylvania.

Tradition says that: 

If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, then winter weather will continue for six more weeks.

If Punxsutawney Phil does NOT see his shadow, then spring weather will come soon.

What will happen tomorrow? 

Will Punxsutawney Phil SEE his shadow or not?
