Thick smoke on U.S. Highway 60 and State Highway 188 can be expected the next couple of days because of increased winds from a low pressure system, fanning the ongoing wildfire. It is possible weather conditions might approach red flag warning levels by Thursday with sustained winds in excess of 20 miles per hour.
Expect increased smoke lingering at Roosevelt Lake. Containment has reached 15 percent. Tonto National Forest fire has closures in place. Visitfs.usda.gov/alerts/tonto/alerts-notices for updates.
