February 2 is Groundhog Day celebrated in the USA and Canada. It is believed that on this day, if a groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its shadow, the winter will continue for six more weeks; otherwise the winter will end soon. The National Climatic Data Center studied the statistics of such Groundhog Day predictions, and reported that the prediction accuracy rate is around 39%. Which is still higher than for most weather forecasters.
