A high-wind warning has been placed on the Bay Bridge in Maryland for the second day in a row.

According to the Maryland Transportation Authority, a wind warning for the Bay Bridge has been reinstated as of approximately 9:55 a.m. on Wednesday, November 18th. This means authorities have clocked sustained wind speeds of 30-39 mph continuously for 10 mins or more; or wind gusts have exceeded 30 mph over a period of 15 mins. 

As of 11:00 a.m., no restrictions had been placed on the bridge, but all motorists, and especially semi trucks with empty trailers, are advised to use caution when crossing.  

Just yesterday, a Full Wind Restriction was put into effect, forbidding any tractor trailer weighing less than 64,000 pounds to cross the Bay Bridge. These restrictions were lifted at around 9 p.m. on Tuesday evening. 

Wind gusts are expected for the area through 6 p.m. on Wednesday, November 18th, reported WBAL TV News.
