As the tradition goes for Groundhogs day, this morning Punxsutawney Phil gave his famous forecast. This year, the prognosticator predicts 6 more weeks of winter. Last year, Phil got it right, but only has an accuracy rate of around 80%. In Minnesota, most regions woke up this morning with temperatures at or below zero. Six more weeks of winter for us may seem like a good deal considering our last measurable snowfall last season fell on April 4th, 2014 at Minneapolis/St Paul. It helps to keep it all in perspective, because on Saint Patrick's Day in 2012, it was 80 degrees!
