Following Phil’s prediction, Chesapeake Chuck calls for more winter

NOTE: Following Phil’s prediction, Chesapeake Chuck saw his shadow and called for six more weeks of winter. Mobile or WAVY app users can watch the ceremony here.


Last year, Chesapeake Chuck did not see his shadow and called for an early spring.

Chuck, the Virginia Living Museum’s resident groundhog, will again make a prognostication on Friday. It will be the eighth time for Chuck.
