Weather delays SFO flights

Flights arriving into San Francisco International Airport were experiencing delays Thursday due to poor weather conditions, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA’s traffic management program was in effect, causing flights scheduled to land at SFO to delay their departures, according to the FAA.

Arriving flights were about 30 minutes to 40 minutes behind schedule Thursday morning, an SFO spokeswoman said. The FAA anticipates flights could be delayed more than two hours.

Three storms expected in the Bay Area beginning Thursday will make up “one of the most powerful storms in the past two years,” said Steve Anderson, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Approximately 2 to 4 inches of rain are expected to fall in the Bay Area, and local mountains could receive up to 8 inches of rain between Thursday and Sunday, Anderson said.
