NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — Groundhog Day with a special New Orleans twist! For about three decades, the Audubon Zoo has turned to T-Boy the Nutria when it comes to predicting the weather. WGNO Anchor Jacki Jing was there when he crawled out of his hole and made his big prediction.

T-Boy did not see his shadow and he's telling Punxsutawney Phil — you're wrong!Warm weather is coming our way!

T-Boy is forecasting great temperatures for Carnival Season.

We'll see if T-Boy's prediction plays out, but probably best to listen to our WGNO meteorologists for a more accurate forecast.
