Groundhog Day 2013: Wiarton Willie, Punxsutawney Phil, Shubenacadie Sam Make Their Forecasts (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

What kind of a winter are we expecting in Canada? Lets not look at long-term forecasts or other types of weather predictions. Let's all crowd around in small towns to see what the humble groundhog thinks. Yes, it's Goundhog Day 2013 on Saturday.

Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil didn't see his shadow, predicting early spring.

Wiarton Willie, Canada's leading rodent prognosticator, also predicted an early spring.

Nova Scotia’s Shubenacadie Sam did see his shadow, so maybe some of us shouldn't put the parkas and winter boots away just yet.

Other groundhogs will also be forecasting the weather on Feb 2.

To keep score, Wiarton Willie predicted an early spring in 2012, meanwhile, Phil saw his shadow and predicted another six weeks of winter. So much for cross-border weather unity.

And in case you're not done with winter, see some of the pictures HuffPost Canada readers have sent us this winter.
