Today is Groundhog Day

Will Punxsutawney Phil pop out of his burrow today?
Today is Groundhog Day, and each year on February 2, the town of Punxsutawney celebrates the legendary groundhog, "Punxsutawney Phil," with a festive atmosphere of music and food. 

During the ceremony, which begins well before the winter sunrise, Phil emerges from his temporary home on Gobbler's Knob, a rural area about two miles east of town. 

Groundhog Day has been celebrated since 1887. According to tradition, if Phil sees his shadow and returns to his hole, he has predicted six more weeks of winter-like like weather. If Phil does not see his shadow, he has predicted an "early spring." 

Does anyone know what this means for South Florida?!?!
