Snow and ice may be blanketing a good part of the country, but the nation’s 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 Phil’s accuracy as a prognosticator at 39 percent. See video of the little critter after the jump.

Phil’s official forecast as read February 2nd, 2011, at sunrise at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, PA:

Here Ye, Hear Ye, Hear Ye

Groundhog Day, February 2, 2011
Punxsutawney Phil was raised from his burrow
By the call of President Bill Deeley.
He greeted his handlers, Ben Hughes and John Griffiths.

After casting an inquisitive eye towards thousands of his faithful followers,
He proclaimed that the Steelers are going to the Super Bowl!

Back to the business at hand…
He surveyed his surroundings carefully and found that there was no shadow around,
So, an early spring it will be.
