Dense fog could delay flights

At the beginning of the one of the biggest travel periods of the year, dense fog has set in around the Bay Area and could delay flights coming into the area.

The National Weather Service has issued a dense fog advisory until 9 a.m., with fog concentrated mostly along the coastal sections. But there are patches of the very low clouds scattered around the Bay Area, and visibility is in the quarter-mile range, forecaster Bob Benjamin said.

Linda Perry, duty manager for San Francisco International Airport, said officials expect the fog to “burn off pretty quickly” but a ground delay program, which meters flights arriving to the airport, from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. could delay arrivals about an hour.

Departures all remain on time, she added.
