SUN PRAIRE (WKOW) -- It looks like Wisconsin residents should gear up for more cold and snowy weather. Jimmy the Groundhog in Sun Prairie predicted six more weeks of winter.

In Philadelphia, Punxsautawney Phil did not see his shadow and predicted an early spring.

Sun Prairie's prognostication event was followed by a Hibernation Hustle Fun Run. Proceeds from the run will benefit the Boys and Girls Club of Dane County.

The event also included the Sun Prairie Police Department Color Guard performing the National Anthem, declarations from the City of Sun Prairie's Mayor, and a gubernatorial proclamation by state representative Gary Hebl, officially declaring Groundhog Day in Wisconsin.
