Every year, a large crowd gathers at the event to wait for the groundhog to crawl out of the cave.

The belief says that if a groundhog, emerging from the cave, notices its shadow, then winter will last at least another six weeks, but if it does not notice the shadow, then spring is expected soon.

Phil the groundhog didn’t notice his shadow this year, so an early spring is expected, at least according to the groundhog.

So far, Phil the groundhog’s predictions over the past twenty years have been only 40% percent accurate.

Phil has been predicting the end of winter every year since 1887 with his groundhog predecessors in the small Pennsylvania town.

But Phil is not the only groundhog in the world entrusted with weather forecasting – Timko III and his predecessors have been doing it for 20 years in Ukraine, at Karazin Biological Station, Kharkiv Region, Ukraine.

Timko III began this important task in 2019, taking over from his father Timko II, making this his fifth time predicting the time, the British broadcaster BBC reported.

According to the residents of Kharkiv, in 2019, Timko III predicted not only the weather, but also the finale of the cult series “Game of Thrones” – that is, the animal allegedly indicated that Jon Snow would become the king of the North.

But this year, the groundhog of Kharkiv has predicted that spring will arrive in Ukraine in six weeks.
