SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- Wisconsin's own furry prognosticator is predicting an early spring.
Jimmy the Groundhog popped up at Cannery Square in Sun Prairie Tuesday but did not see his shadow through the light snowfall.
According to German tradition, if the hibernating animal sees its shadow on Feb. 2 -- the Christian holiday of Candlemas -- winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, winter will end early.
According to organizers, Jimmy has an 80 percent record of accuracy.
