UNDATED (AP) - Spring is coming early: So sayeth the rodent -- or at least that's what his handlers tell us.

Pennsylvania's most famous groundhog, Punxsutawney Phil, has failed to see his shadow, meaning he's "predicted" an early spring.

But, of course, members of the top hat-wearing Inner Circle decided the prediction ahead of time, as always.

They announced the results at sunrise on Gobbler's Knob -- just outside the town for which Phil is named.
