Scranton is located in a valley. The surrounding mountains are the Pocono Mountains to the east and the Endless Mountains to the north. The city's valley location affects the atmospheric pressure. The surrounding mountains block or redirect air masses. This influences the pressure systems that reach the city.

The mountains also contribute to Scranton's weather patterns. They create an orographic effect. Moist air is forced to rise, cool, and condense. This leads to precipitation, often in the form of snow.
