Essex Ed, the Essex County Turtle Back Zoo's clairvoyant groundhog, saw his shadow on Sunday.

This means colder temperatures are without questions going to continue for six more weeks, according to a longstanding tradition that ties meteorology to woodchuck silhouettes.  

Essex Ed has an outstanding record predicting the weather, making the correct forecast 44 times in the 50 years that Essex County Turtle Back Zoo has been opened, according to officials with the West Orange zoo.
