    (NECN) - Groundhog Day reminds many people of the Bill Murray classic, but it it also a big day for Punxsutawney, Penn., where a special groundhog makes an important weather prediction.

    Punxsutawney Phill saw his shadow on Thursday morning. According to tradition, that means six more weeks of winter weather.

    There may be no need to get worked up. Meteorologist Danielle Niles says Phill's accuracy rate is only about 39 percent.
