SUN PRAIRIE, Wis. — Sun Prairie's version of Pennsylvania's Punxsutawney Phil is predicting more winter.

Jimmy the Groundhog saw his shadow Sunday. And, according to legend, that means that there will be six more weeks of winter.

Sun Prairie Mayor John Murray delivered the news at the annual Groundhog Day event. And State Rep. Gary Hebl, D-Sun Prairie, read a proclamation of Groundhog Day from Gov. Scott Walker.

Jimmy's prognostication was the same as Punxsutawney Phil in Pennsylvania.
