Groundhog Day: Is Punxsutawney Phil About To Predict Another Six Weeks Of Winter?

With Groundhog Day taking place on Tuesday, William Hill bookmakers are offering 1/4 that Punxsutawney Phil sees a shadow, thus predicting another six weeks of wintery weather. It is 11/4 that he does not see a shadow and that Spring is just around the corner.

“Last year, Punxsutawney Phil saw a shadow and rang in another six weeks of winter,” said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly. “We think he will do so again with the wintery conditions set to hang around America for a few more weeks yet.”

What will Punxsutawney Phil predict: 11/4 an early spring; 1/4 more cold and icy winter weather
