Groundhog day!

Posted February 1, 2011

Groundhog day is just around the corner!  On Wednesday, groundhogs across the country will be rustled from their winter naps to give us a forecast.  Will we see an early spring or six more weeks of winter?

In our most recent Web Weather Extra, we spoke with Liz Jones from the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences.  Where did Groundhog Day come from, and what's so magical about these critters?  Plus, how does our local prognosticator stack up against his national competition?  (You might be surprised — in this case, experience isn't everything!)
