If Phil wakes and finds himself shadowless, he takes it as a sign of an early spring and stays above ground. He's been able to live so long by drinking from the "elixir of life" which gives him seven more years of life every time he drinks it, and ensures that he'll be able to continue making weather predictions for plenty of years to come!

Preparations for Groundhog Day 2019 began back on February 3, 2018 - right after Punxsutawney Phil issued his forecast of six more weeks of winter for that year.

Groundhog Day: Like Father Like Son is a virtual reality adventure game to be released later this year on PlayStation Virtual Reality and other major VR platforms.

The first official Groundhog Day was celebrated in Punxsutawney, PA, in 1887.

Mother Nature hadn't been all that kind to the region as Groundhog Day approached.

If he would have saw his shadow, winter would last for another six weeks. The news arrived on Saturday, which marks Groundhog Day in 2019.

At day break, on February 2, Punxsutawney Phil awakens from his burrow on Gobbler's Knob (yes, really), is helped to the top of the stump and tells the President of the Inner Circle - in a language known as "groundhogese", his verdict.

According to the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club traces the introduction of the animal to Germany, where people initially using hedgehogs as the hibernating mammal of choice.

In the original film from 1993, Murray played Phil Connors, a weatherman finding himself trapped in a seemingly endless loop as he relived the same day over and over again.

NOAA has said that Punxsutawney Phil has "no predictive skill," and has been accurate 40 percent of the time.
