Wind warnings in place on Maryland bridges Monday

The storm that dampened the Monday morning commute is also bringing heavy winds responsible for warnings on four Maryland bridges.

The Maryland Transportation Authority said Monday morning that wind warnings are in place on the Bay, Key, Tydings and Hatem bridges. Such warnings are in place when sustained winds are recorded at between 30 and 39 miles per hour.


The weather wasn't causing much trouble for Baltimore Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport, however, as there were no significant delays as of 8 a.m. Monday. Some flights on Sunday night were delayed due to poor weather along the East Coast. Winds there were in the 20 to 25 mph range Monday morning.

Temperatures in Maryland will be in the low 40s for much of Monday, with a chance of rain for the whole day.


In Delaware, rough weather is keeping the Cape May-Lewes ferry at its dock. Officials canceled all trips on Monday because of high winds and rough seas on the water between Delaware and New Jersey.

In the South, at least 18 people are reported dead after violent storms. And in California, damaging rain was responsible for flooding, mudslides and evacuations.

Weather in Maryland will gradually improve Tuesday, and on Wednesday, the forecast calls for temperatures in the mid to upper 50s with sunny skies.
