Rain, wind cause 90-minute flight delays at SFO

Flights arriving to and departing from San Francisco International Airport are expected to be delayed by up to 90 minutes today due to rainy and windy conditions, according to an airport duty manager.

Departing flights are not expected to be impacted by delays as much as arriving flights, said Dan D'Innocenti, an airport duty manager.

Oakland and San Jose flights on time

Arriving and departing flights atOakland International Airport and Norman Y. Mineta San Jose International Airport are not expected to be significantly delayed today by the weather.

“So far we're good,” said San Jose International Airport spokesman David Vossbrink. “We are usually pretty lucky with weather.”

SFO flights are usually affected more by the weather, Vossbrink said.

Tonight: More rain, less wind

A storm along the West Coast tonight is expected to bring more rain but less wind than the Bay Area's hurricane-force storm Jan. 4, according to Steve Anderson, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service.

Around 2 to 3 inches of rain are expected throughout the Bay Area on Friday and Saturday, and the mountains could get 5 or more inches of rain through Saturday, Anderson said.

Unlike the 75-mph wind gusts that swept across the Golden Gate Bridge and through Marin County on Jan. 4, wind gusts between 25 and 35 mph are expected throughout the Bay Area on Friday, according to Anderson.

The storm is expected to last through Saturday, Anderson said.
