Ongoing stormy weather in the Bay Area has caused more than 100 flights to be canceled at San Francisco International Airport today, while minor delays have been reported at other airports in the region.

At least 130 flights have been canceled at SFO, with cancellations evenly split between departing and arriving flights, airport spokesperson Doug Yakel said.

The canceled flights are mostly short-haul flights to and from West Coast cities. Some of the cancellations are due to airlines consolidating flights because of the weather conditions and low airport
traffic.

Those flights that  are not canceled may have delays, averaging around about 45 minutes to an hour. This delay time could increase later today however,  since storm conditions are expected to peak later this afternoon.

At Mineta San Jose International Airport, a handful of flights are delayed, mostly on flights arriving from Los Angeles. Delays on departing flights are minimal, according to airport spokesperson Vicki Day. No flights have been canceled so far, although with the ongoing weather conditions that could change.

At Oakland International Airport, delays have been minimal, with delay times averaging between five and 15 minutes, according to airport spokesperson Keonnis Taylor. No flights have been canceled so far.

“We have been doing well,” Taylor said. “Our operations team has been doing an excellent job of keeping airport traffic down and things have been running very smooth, despite the weather.”

Airport officials recommend that travelers check with their airlines for specific flight information.airportdelaysrainSFOweather
