It's Groundhog Day and Punxsutawney Phil has made his prediction.

He says expect an early spring. Not all his counterparts agree. 

Connecticut Chuckes saw his shadow and predicts six more weeks of winter according to WTIC TV. So did Nova Scotia's Shubenacadie Sam, a Canadian groundhog reports CTV News.

CNN reports that Staten Island Chuck's prediction is also for an early spring. Chuck makes his prediction at the Staten Island Zoo.

With thousands watching on Gobbler's Knob in west-central Pennsylvania, the furry rodent emerged from his lair Saturday but didn't see his shadow.

Legend has it that if the groundhog sees his shadow on Feb. 2, winter will last six more weeks. But if he doesn't see his shadow, spring will come early. At least that's what the Inner Circle says — the group that dons top hats and tuxedos on Groundhog Day each year to oversee the ceremony.

Inner Circle president Bill Deeley says that after "consulting" with Phil, he makes the call in deciphering what the world's most famous groundhog has to say about the weather.
