Groundhog Day

Groundhog Day is a day that foretells whether winter will continue for 6 more weeks or whether spring will start early. Each and every February a groundhog will come out of its burrow. If it acknowledges his shadow then it is believed that there will be 6 more weeks of winter. If not, spring is supposed to come early.

But how accurate is Groundhog Day? Well, a team of scientists actually put the theory to the test. They calculated the past 30 years’ worth of data on the average daily temperatures of those last 6 weeks after Groundhog Day and compared them to when the Groundhog saw its shadow and when it didn’t. The results were fascinating. It showed more times than often that this theory was indeed true in some areas of the country, with the temperature only raising a few degrees higher when he didn’t see his shadow. As for accuracy well, there were still a fair few places that the theory didn’t hold up so the predictions are really what you want to believe!
