More than 100 flights canceled Tuesday at SFO due to wind

More than 100 flights at San Francisco International Airport were canceled Tuesday as a result of windy conditions, an airport duty manager said.

Ground delay programs, also known as “flow control,” are used when the Federal Aviation Administration slows the arrival rate of incoming aircraft getting ready to land, according to the airport.

SFO duty manager Dan Dinnocenti said 105 flights have been canceled due to the wind and the airport's runaway configuration.

He said winds were likely to continue throughout the night.

The National Weather Service announced a hazardous weather outlook in the Bay Area due to strong and gusty winds.

Gusts at SFO were forecasted to reach above 40 mph Tuesday night, according to weather service officials.
