Low-lying clouds are expected to cause delays of about an hour for flights at San Francisco International Airport this morning, an airport duty manager said.

The inclement weather is prompting a ground delay program that is expected to last from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., SFO duty manager Joe Walsh said.

The airport typically can handle about 60 arriving flights per hour, but the low visibility means that number will be cut in half this morning, Walsh said.

Travelers are advised to check with their airline for information about flight times and possible delays.
