The weather in Philadelphia varies from season to season with cool, wet winters that sometimes see snowfall. Snow cover does not stay long and daytime temperatures usually are above freezing, even in winter, melting any snow. While snow is on the ground or when the temperature does reach below freezing, walkways can be icy for pedestrians and should be avoided. Rain is frequent in Philadelphia and waterproof jackets and footwear are required for frequent dog walkers in the Mill Creek neighborhood. Summers are hot and humid and walking with your pet on muggy days can be taxing. Planning walks for cooler times of the day will be better for you and your pet.
