    Cool and cloudy weather this morning was causing flight delays of more than an hour at San Francisco International Airport, with a wet weather system forecast to hit the Bay Area on Monday.

    Flights coming in and out of SFO on Sunday were experiencing delays between an hour and 90 minutes as of 11 a.m., airport duty manager Joe Walsh said.

    There was no indication this morning that the low-ceiling clouds would clear and flights would get back on schedule, he said.

    National Weather Forecaster Steve Anderson said that rain was expected to hit the Bay Area on Monday and would continue on and off through Tuesday.

    The storm is part of the "remnants" of Tropical Storm Yagi that hit the western Pacific last week about 250 miles south of Japan, Anderson said.

    Rainfall could measure up to an inch in the North Bay and coastal mountains, he said.

    San Francisco could get between a quarter and half an inch of rain, and the South Bay is likely to get around a quarter of an inch, he said.

    The weather is likely to warm up and return to more familiar summer patterns on Wednesday.
