Flights resume after thick fog causes delays at Lindbergh Field

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8/CNS) - Travel at Lindbergh Field resumed as usual Tuesday morning, after the heavy fog that prompted some incoming flights to be delayed or diverted cleared out.

The fog began rolling into the area around 8 p.m. Monday. By 10:30 p.m., visibility was at a quarter-mile, with a 100-foot ceiling, according to airport officials. A ground stop was issued, but has since been lifted.

At least seven flights bound for Lindbergh Field on Monday night were diverted to Los Angeles International Airport and at least four departing flights were delayed due to foggy conditions.

As many as 60,000 airline passengers are expected to pass through the airport each day during the Thanksgiving travel period, according to airport officials.

If you're traveling Tuesday morning, check with your carrier in case of any delays, especially with bad weather in other parts of the country.
