Answer: The groundhog missed last year when he predicted six more weeks of winter. It snowed four inches on Feb. 8, 2017, one of the winter of 2016-17’s biggest snowfalls. That’s according to weather records kept at Central Illinois Regional Airport. However, most of the rest of the month was mild, with temperatures in February 2017 twice even reaching into the 70s. We can surely hope for a rerun.
