Smoke impacts from the Whitewater-Baldy fire on the border region are minimal today. The forecast for smoke is similar to yesterday with localized impacts near the fire with transport due to downslope and downvalley winds. Winds are expected to be from the southwest to transport winds toward the northeast. Yesterday afternoon, smoke was visible mainly near the fire. Below shows a MODIS image from the Aqua satellite. Red dots show the location of the active burning areas yesterday.
