East coast storm snows in Bay Area flights

Dozens of flights headed for Bay Area airports have been cancelled Tuesday¬†as a result of Winter Storm Stella, a late-season nor’easter which has brought heavy snow from the Appalachian mountains to New England.

As of 2:15 p.m., a total of 69 inbound flights had been cancelled.

Most of those can be attributed to weather, but not all, according to the duty manager’s office at San Francisco International Airport.

There have also been 46 outbound flights cancelled.

SFO has experienced a total of 39 inbound delays, although many of those may be unrelated to the storm.

Mineta San Jose International Airport has reported five inbound flights cancelled today, including one from Baltimore, one from New York, one from Boston and two from Newark. All of those flights would have arrived between 5 p.m. and 9 p.m. tonight.

There were also three departing flights cancelled this morning, according to airport officials.

Both airports reported cancellations and delays to San Diego and Los Angeles today due to fog, which is unrelated to the heavy snow in the northeast.

Officials at Oakland International Airport were unaware of any delays or cancellations at their facility as a result of the storm this afternoon.
