Breaking "news" at 7:27 a.m. ET: Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter. He saw "many shadows."

Our original post:

It's that time again.

Time for Americans to pause and watch as a Pennsylvania groundhog supposedly tells us whether we will or won't have six more weeks of winter.

Punxsutawney Phil is due to emerge from his "burrow" at 7:20 a.m ET.

As everyone knows, "if Punxsutawney Phil sees his shadow, there will be six more weeks of winter weather. If he does not see his shadow, there will be an early spring."

There's a live webcast here.

We'll update with the "news" when Phil gives us his forecast.
