The results are in: On Groundhog Day 2020 Punxsutawney Phil could not find his shadow. And as the legend goes, this means we're in for an early spring. 

The Pennsylvania groundhog isn't the only weather-predicting rodent in this quirky American tradition, but he is the most famous.

And according to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club, his opinion is the only one that matters.

This is only the 20th time out of 123 in his recorded history (there are 10 years where no record remains) that Phil hasn't been able to find his shadow. 

It's hard to imagine that spring is right around the corner after the vicious cold front this past week, but we'll just have to wait and see. 

The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club's Inner Circle — a group that organizes the event and cares for groundhog Phil — brought Punxsutawney Phil out of his den in front of a large crowd as cameras beamed his image around the world.

The Punxsutawney Groundhog Club traces the tradition's roots back to Candlemas Day in Europe – the Christian "festival of lights" that falls on Feb. 2, midway between the start and end of winter.

According to the modern-day legend:

If Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring.

That's how the Club describes the Feb. 2 tradition, which marks the midway point of winter.
