Every year, people in Pennsylvania gather around Punxsutawney Phil to see him determine whether or not winter is staying for another six weeks.

Though there’s not scientific fact to back up Phil’s claims about winter, given the weather we’ve had lately I think he might actually be right this year.

According to CNN, Phil can only be understood by the president of the “Inner Circle,” the group who cares and provides for the little guy.

Also according to CNN, Phil’s accuracy is roughly 45 percent. Although, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts warmer weather in our area, so maybe his accuracy will go up!

Twitter users responded to Phil’s prediction with the usual amount of sass.
I also didn't see my shadow this morning. Of course success starts before the sunrises. #GroundhogDay

Some people are just expecting Phil to be wrong and winter to stay.

Whether or not we have freezing temperatures, take some time today to enjoy the nice weather we’ve been having. Who knows when it might be gone?
