Flights are being delayed by about 90 minutes at San Francisco International Airport on Friday due to inclement weather, an airport duty manager said.

The airport at 7 a.m. began slowing traffic to 27 arrivals and 27 departures per hour, Duty Manager Lily Wang said.

On a clear day, the airport can see 60 arrivals and 60 departures per hour, Wang said.

By noon, delays could increase to two and a half hours due to ongoing weather-related issues, she said.
