Clairton is a small city located in Allegheny County in the southwestern part of the state. It lies along the Monongahela River and is considered part of the Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area. As of the 2010 census, the population of Clairton was 6,796. The city is known for being home to the largest coke manufacturing plant in the United States, and for being the setting for the movie "The Deer Hunter" (1978,) although none of the actual movie was filmed in Clairton. Instead, other mill towns in the Monongahela River Valley tri-state area were used. For recreation, Clairton has the Montour Trail, a recreational rail-trail that extends from the city to Coraopolis, Pennsylvania. There are also two state parks in the area; Point State Park, which is at the confluence of the Allegheny and Monongahela Rivers in downtown Pittsburgh, and Allegheny Islands State Park. Just a short drive from Clairton is the city of Pittsburgh, which offers all sorts of entertainment and cultural attractions. Among them; the Pittsburgh Symphony Orchestra, Pittsburgh Opera, the National Negro Opera Company, several theater companies and organizations and the Pittsburgh Ballet Theater. Other attractions near Clairton include the Pittsburgh Zoo and Aquarium, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, and the Phipps Conservatory and Botanical Gardens.

Summers are hot and humid (with occasional heatwaves), while winters are cold and snowy. Fall and spring are mild to warm. Due to its location on the windward side of the Allegheny Mountains, this region receives heavier precipitation than places farther to the west. Many days are subject to overcast skies, with 153 days of the year with some precipitation. Frequent thunderstorms are seen in spring and summer. October is the driest month. Blizzards in the wintertime and tornadoes in springtime are a possibility, but rare.
