Want to check the temps of one of our hunting spots in the wilderness. The closest city Is 3,000 feet lower then where we hunt so the temp readings from there aren't very accurate.

Is there a website that will pet me click on an exact spot on a map and get me an accurate reading?

No, not that I have found. Weather underground site has listings of people that have personal weather stations so if there is someone nearby your hunting spot you may be good to go. It is live and many tell wind pressure etc wunderground

Yea it's classified wilderness area so no weather stations setup and the trail head is miles from where we hunt and miles from the closest town.

How would you expect to get weather reports then?  

You should set up a personal weather station and have it send info to your phone.

I'm not well versed in how they track weather. Was hoping a radar or satellite or something would just always be recording weather and I could click on that spot from a google earth type map.

I dunno, this map seems pretty accurate when you turn on the Temperature layer...

It's probably as accurate as you're likely to get anyway.

all you'll get are cloud and maybe precipitation.  anything more than a vaguely educated guess at temp requires having thermometers locally.

eta: you can make a rough guess by subtracting ~5.5* F per thousand feed of elevation from the nearest town's temp for dry air.  use 3.5*/1k feet for more moist air.  this is not an exact measurement at all.  it's a ballpark at best.

I use this (NWS) - clickable map. It seems to extrapolate for areas that dont have their own sensors.  Map is on middle right side.

Check area METAR, triangulate, divide by 3 and get a mean average. Close enough.
