Will the Groundhogs see their shadows?

Groundhog Day is Sunday February 2, 2014. What will the groundhogs say? Will winter last another 6 weeks?

The tradition of Groundhog day began in the 18th century. It is said that if an animal sees its shadow on February 2 - there will be six more weeks of winter.
