Rainy day could bring flight delays, highway flooding 

The rain today will likely cause late arrivals at the San Francisco International Airport, and drivers should be on the lookout for highway flooding throughout the Bay Area.

It rained a little more than an inch overnight in some parts of the Bay Area and will likely keep showering throughout the day, just not as heavy, said National Weather Service Forecaster Diana Henderson.

No major crashes were reported overnight, but reports of highway flooding in Redwood City and Marin have California Highway Patrol officers warning drivers to slow down.

Overnight, the usual hot-spot on Interstate 280 in San Francisco at Mariposa almost started flooding, but it didn't get very serious, said CHP Officer Kevin Kroncke.

However, if the rain continues to pour throughout the day, it’s an area to keep an eye on, Kroncke said.

An airport duty manager said that the showers will likely delay arrival times while planes wade through the fog and rain before landing, but departures should be on time.
