Raleigh And Charlotte Groundhogs Disagree

Groundhogs in North Carolina's two biggest cities disagree on the forecast for the next six weeks.

Sir Walter Wally in Raleigh saw his shadow around noon Saturday, predicting six more weeks of winter. But in Charlotte, Queen Charlotte didn't see her shadow when she came out around 11:30 a.m., predicting an early spring.

Sir Walter Wally missed his prediction last year, while Queen Charlotte was on the money as temperatures in February and March of 2012 were well above normal in North Carolina.

Sir Walter Wally makes his predictions at the North Carolina Museum of Natural Sciences, while Queen Charlotte made her appearance at the Charlotte Nature Museum.
