While there have been many days of spring-like weather following cold nights and frigid mornings, a change is the seasons could come early.

An early spring is on the way, according to Pennsylvania groundhog "Punxsutawney Phil," who did not see his shadow at the official Groundhog Day ceremony Saturday.

Folklore states if a groundhog emerges from its burrow and sees its shadow, six more weeks of winter can be expected. If his shadow is not seen, the changing of the seasons is expected to arrive early.

The tradition began in 1887 and according to ABC News, records indicate an early spring has only been predicted 16 times with Phil seeing his shadow 99.
