The weather in this section of Philadelphia provides variable conditions for on-foot travel. You will need a variety of outerwear to make walking comfortable throughout the year. Winter weather is moderately cold. Although daytime temperatures usually climb above freezing, sub-freezing temperatures can occur. If you have a short-haired dog or one that is not acclimatized to the cold, your dog may appreciate a warm, waterproof coat.
