Groundhog Day 2023 livestream: Punxsutawney Phil makes his annual weather prediction

To shadow, or not to shadow?

That is the question the town of Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, asked Thursday morning, as Punxsutawney Phil made his annual weather prediction.

The famed groundhog rose from his burrow on Groundhog Day and saw his shadow, predicting we will have an additional six weeks of winter here in the U.S.

Unfortunately for Phil, he's not the most accurate when it comes to predicting weather.
