    Thick fog caused delays at San Francisco International Airport this morning, and more delays are anticipated throughout the day, an  airport duty manager said.

    As of about 9 a.m., several airlines were reporting delays of 10 to 30 minutes. Passengers are advised to check with their airlines before heading to the airport.
    Along with a fog advisory issued on a Bay Area bridge, weather is also making waves along the coast - as in a high surf advisory.

    Along the coast spanning from the North Bay's Point Reyes National Seashore to southern Monterey Bay, a high surf advisory is in place until 3  p.m., according to the National Weather Service.

    Westerly swells between 13 and 16 feet are expected through the afternoon, with the largest swells crashing onto beaches early this morning,  weather officials said.

    [BAY] Videocast: Super Weekend Forecast
    Chilly mornings followed by mild afternoons look to be the trend of the weekend, with some passing high clouds at times later on Super Bowl Sunday. Highs will be quite mild with mostly 60s around the Bay Area and possibly some 70s especially near the South Bay and from San Jose southward. We will see increasing clouds on Monday with some rain possible after sunset for areas north of San Francisco - Tuesday still looks to be the main event rain wise with a few showers lingering into Wednesday morning. High pressure is expected to build back over the region for the rest of the week for more dry weather. With Tuesday's rain and a temperature inversion in place, we may have some patchy thick fog to deal with a times, otherwise not much more than Tuesday's weather system appears to be heading our way to help our rainfall/snowpack deficits around the Bay Area and the rest of Northern California.Enjoy your Saturday! - Rob Mayeda

    According to the NWS, shoreline areas will be dangerous today with strong rip currents and possible sneaker waves.

    Local beaches face possible erosion because of big waves, weather officials said.
