(CNN) — Famed groundhog weather prognosticator Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow Sunday morning at Gobbler’s Knob in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, foretelling six more weeks of winter.

The good news is that, according to analysis by the National Climatic Data Center, Phil is wrong most of the time.

This is the 101st time he has seen his shadow since 1887. There was no record of his first prediction in 1886, the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club says on its website.

Connecticut’s state groundhog and weather prognosticator, Chuckles, at the Lutz Children’s Museum in Manchester, also saw her shadow Sunday morning.
