sfo03.jpg11:59 AM: Flights at San Francisco International Airport continued to be delayed this morning due to earlier dense clouds and fog, an airport duty manager said.

Clouds were beginning to clear late this morning, but regional flights arriving and departing from SFO were still experiencing delays between 45 minutes and an hour, duty manager Doug Yakel said.

The flight delays could impact flights up until 2 p.m., but if the cloud cover continues to break up, most should be back on schedule earlier in the afternoon, Yakel said.

Passengers should check with their air carriers for the most updated flight information before heading to SFO.

7:05 AM: Dense fog and low-lying clouds are causing flight delays of up to an hour at San Francisco International Airport this morning, an airport duty manager said.

The cloud and fog layer will likely cause delays ranging from 45 minutes to an hour throughout the morning, especially for flights arriving from destinations west of the Mississippi River, the manager said.

Airport officials are preparing for flight delays through 2 p.m. but say that could change if weather conditions improve.

The National Weather Service is reporting that this morning’s cloud cover is expected to lift later in the day.

    SFO Delays low clouds…
    Another day, water on the runway – There was no or light drizzle
    Another day, one of the runways was closed – no reason given.
    All this within about 2 months.
    At first I thought it was SouthWest but no, its SFO.

    SFO has become a joke for flights – dont use them if you want to leave Friday or arrive back in SF on time. The more dependable airport- weirdly has been oakland.
    I hope SFO gets fined for so many times they have caused travelers to reschedule, reroute, -its costing everyone money and angst !!
