Groundhog Day celebrations took place today at Gobbler’s Knob in Pennsylvania, including live music performances and fireworks. Groundhog Day is celebrated on February 2 every year at sunrise, which was 7.26am EST (12.26pm GMT) today. Some members of the crowd had stayed up all night to make sure they had the best view of Phil.
What did Phil predict?
The groundhog emerged from his burrow as the crowds chanted fro him to wake up.
Phil chose a scroll which said: “Predicting the weather, that’s my song, for 133 years I’ve never been wrong.
“So is it early spring or more winter forecast stop the music here is my forecast."
