Punxsutawney Phil did not see his shadow in early February, allegedly spelling the end of winter. The groundhog's been wrong before, so we talked with an expert.

David Church, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Billings, says it doesn't look like winter's technically over just yet.

Monday's snow storm, complete with freezing fog and strong winds, came from the northwest - like many of the most recent weather systems. Church explains why areas beneath the Big Horn Mountains get hit with such unpredictable weather.

He says Sheridan residents can expect warmer temperatures starting Wednesday, but it could be a wet month. So it appears the reclusive groundhog was wrong, at least for northeastern Wyoming this month.
