SFO’s busiest day of the year could be a wet one

AP File PhotoSFO are expecting 2 million travelers to pass through between today and Jan. 6

An estimated 130,000 passengers are expected to pass through SFO today, and more than 2 million holiday travelers are expected to use the airport through Jan. 6, SFO spokesman Doug Yakel said.

Snow and turbulent winter weather in the Midwest on Thursday were already causing flight delays between the Bay Area and Chicago, SFO Duty Manager Linda Perry said.

Rain was expected to move into the Bay Area on Thursday night and continue this morning, potentially complicating travel plans for anyone flying out of SFO, according to the National Weather Service.

As always, passengers are advised to check the status of their flights before heading to the airport. Travelers also are encouraged to allow at least 90 minutes for check-in and security clearance for domestic flights and up to two hours for international travel.

Passengers should not wrap gifts, in case security officers need to inspect packages in carry-on luggage, according to the federal Transportation Security Administration.
