SUN PRAIRIE (WKOW) -- Wisconsinites can expect to see an early spring after Jimmy the Groundhog in Sun Prairie didn't see his shadow Tuesday morning.

The 73rd annual Groundhog Day event in Sun Prairie was virtual this year due to the pandemic, but that didn't stop Jimmy from passing along his prognostication for 2021.

Businesses throughout Sun Prairie are offering Groundhog Day specials, including Buck 'n Honey's, Beans n Cream, Board and Brush, Forever Yours Jewelry, Faded Roots Boutique, Groundswell Wisconsin, Prairie Flowers and Gifts and Wisconsin Apparel.

In Philadelphia, Punxsutawney Phil saw his shadow and predicted six more weeks of winter.
