Groundhog's Day!

Which forecast do you believe -- the forecast from a Groundhog or the forecast of a meteorologist? Wait... maybe you shouldn't answer that.

Friday was a big day for weather fans all across the country -- Groundhog's Day. The famous Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow this morning in Pennsylvania. North Carolina's own Sir Walter Wally also did not see his shadow today. According to Groundhog's Day folklore that means both groundhogs were in agreement that winter won't last much longer.

We may have some doubts to that forecast come next week. Bitterly cold air will move into North Carolina during the first half of the week. Tuesday and Wednesday mornings could feature lows in the teens. Highs on Tuesday may only warm into the 30s despite mostly sunny conditions.
