Wind Warnings in Effect on Hatem, Tydings Bridges

The Maryland Transportation Authority issued the warnings Sunday afternoon.

Motorists should use caution on bridges due to high winds, the Maryland Transportation Authority (MdTA) said Sunday.

Wind warnings were in effect on the Hatem and Tydings bridges as of 2:30 p.m.

The MdTA issues wind warnings when winds are between 30 and 39 mph.

People driving motorcycles, vehicles with roof cargo, box trucks or trailers should use caution while traveling on bridges during high wind, MdTA advised.

The Key Bridge and the Bay Bridge were also operating under wind restrictions Sunday. On the Key Bridge, the MdTA advised using caution due to crosswinds.

In addition, a gale warning is in effect for Baltimore and Harford Counties through 6 p.m. on Dec. 30. A gale warning means that winds at sea are between 39 and 54 mph and that boaters should stay off the water.
