Several hikers have asked about Pacific Crest Trail weather forecasts. We use the National Weather Service (NWS) point forecasts from Weather.gov. These point forecasts are for a 2.5km grid and using Halfmile Project data makes it easy to find the forecast for a specific location along the PCT. Point forecasts are for the elevation of the PCT which are often thousands of feet above nearby towns.
