Tomorrow is February 2, the traditional date on which we look to a rodent to tell us whether to expect six more weeks of winter weather or an early spring.
As always, it depends on which groundhog, or colloquially, the woodchuck, you're looking at, and where that groundhog is located. If you live in Plymouth and see a groundhog in your backyard tomorrow, it may or may not see its shadow, depending on what time of day you see it. If you do see a tiny furry shadow scurrying across your yard that we'll have another six weeks of cold nasty weather. Februray 2 is going to be partly cloudy with increasing clouds through the day with a high near 33 degrees, according to the National Weather Service. There's a chance of snow Saturday night, but mainly after midnight.
