In honor of Groundhog Day, Punxsutawney Phil headed out to share his prediction of when spring will arrive AP/Screenshot

Punxsutawney Phil headed out to Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa., to provide a special forecast Tuesday morning.

Phil did not see his shadow around 7:30 a.m. According to legend, if the groundhog doesn’t see his shadow, then spring will come early.

According to WKYC, this is the 18th time the groundhog did not see his shadow. Last year was the 102nd time he saw his shadow, predicting an additional six weeks of winter.

In the past 10 years, Phil has gotten the forecast right about 40% of the time, the National Climate Prediction Center reported.
