I just noticed the national weather service forecasts can be made for any point on the AT- nws.noaa.gov. What you do is get a forecast for a town or known spot like Hotsprings. Then take your cursor to the accompany map on the lower right. Use the mouse roller to zoom in to the max, then use the direction mover on the map to move the aimpoint towards the trail. As you go along, you'll see the trail itself show up - I never knew it was on the NWS maps. Then you can click on the point you want a forecast for and the NWS will give you a forecast for that altitude, longitude and latitude. PCT is on there too and there may be other trails as well.
