Snow and ice may be blanketing a good part of the country, but the nationís foremost groundhog says better weather is coming soon.

Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this February 2nd, as he emerged from Gobbler's Knob, which suggests we will have an early spring.

Since 1887, Phil has only predicted 15 early springs. The StormFax Weather Almanac pegs Philís accuracy as a prognosticator at 39 percent. See video of the little critter after the jump.
