Long Island Groundhogs Predict More Winter
Holtsville Hal and Malverne Mel both saw their shadows on Groundhog Day, which fell on Saturday this year. That’s counter to both groundhog-in-chief Punksatony Phil and New York City’s Staten Island Chuck, neither of whom saw their shadows, suggesting there will be an early spring.
The “predictions” come as LI’s forecast calls for a chance of light snow Saturday and Sunday with temperatures in the high 20s or low 30s, remaining below freezing through next week when a chance of light snow returns for Tuesday and Wednesday, according to the National Weather Service.
Temps are forecast to warm up slightly to 36 under mostly sunny skies next Thursday before a chance of rain and snow returns Friday.
