The forecast is directly from NOAA, doubt you will find better
that said I'd imagine the closer the weather station would net better results
scroll the list and you will see

16 miles away seems reasonable yet rim weather is so frantic ( based on past experiences ) I always prepare for the worst in that neck of the woods
Hike Arizona it ROCKS!

Welcome to Arizona in July. Exact forecasts are hard to come by as we are in the monsoon season. In general you should plan for the possibility of showers and thunderstorms between noon and 2AM, and following a storm it will cool off, but be more humid.

In Greer AZ (near Mt Baldy) the historical avg low is 50, and the coldest 2 weeks ago was 52. It will be colder as you gain elevation and you should plan to lose about 3 degrees for every 1000 ft in elevation. So the top of Mt Baldy could indeed get down to the 40s at night or right after a storm. If you just look at the TH forecast, be mindful it only applies there, not to higher points along your hike. In some cases, like Mt Baldy, it is better to use the map and click along the trail to get a forecast for mid-way up the Mtn.
