Stormy Weather Thwarts Bay Area Air Travel

Stormy snowy weather on the East Coast and in the Midwest is continuing to affect travelers heading to and from the Bay Area today.

There were 14 canceled arrivals and departures at San Francisco International Airport this morning, airport duty manager Joe Walsh said.

Walsh said cancellations are stemming from weather problems at Boston, John F. Kennedy, Newark, Philadelphia and Chicago airports.

There are other flights delayed up to 60 minutes, he said.

Oakland International Airport travelers may be impacted indirectly by the bad weather because of connecting flights being delayed or canceled, airport spokesman Scott Wintner said.

From Oakland, there were five canceled flights this morning just on the West Coast, Wintner said.

At Mineta San Jose International Airport, two arrivals and one departing flight from Boston have been canceled, airport spokeswoman Rosemary Barnes said.

A flight to Chicago is also delayed, Barnes said.

She advised travelers to check in with their airlines before heading to the airport, no matter the destination.
