SAN FRANCISCO (CBS SF) — Low-lying clouds were expected to cause delays of about an hour for flights at San Francisco International Airport Monday morning, an airport duty manager said.

The inclement weather was prompting a ground delay program that was expected to last from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., SFO duty manager Joe Walsh said.

The airport typically can handle about 60 arriving flights per hour, but the low visibility means that number will be cut in half this morning, Walsh said.

Travelers were advised to check with their airline for information about flight times and possible delays.
