The California Highway Patrol has issued a wind advisory for three Bay Area Bridges Sunday.

Motorists on the Bay Bridge, the Richmond San Rafael Bridge and the Hayward-San Mateo Bridge should drive with extreme caution while storm conditions persist, according to the CHP.

Wind gusts of up to 40 mph and rain were causing dangerous conditions on bridges and roadways throughout the Bay Area, the CHP said.

Motorists should slow down, leave plenty of space between vehicles and be prepared for puddles and some flooding on the roadways, according to the CHP.
