Fog means West Coast flight delays 

Make sure to call the airport before planning on any flights on the West Coast in and out of San Francisco International Airport this morning.

Because there’s a low cloud ceiling at the airport this morning, a ground delay program will be limiting arrivals coming from a 1,600-mile radius of the airport, according to a duty manager. That generally means West Coast flights.

Arrivals will be delayed first up to about 45 minutes, then subsequent departures will probably also be affected.

The ground delay is effective until about 1 p.m., but it could be canceled if the weather clears.

Also, nonstop flights to the Newark airport in New Jersey might arrive later than expected because there are some strong winds there, according to a duty manager.
