A fog advisory was issued for local coastal areas as bad weather across the country continued to affect flights at the San Diego International Airport.

National Weather Service officials have issued a dense fog advisory for coastal cities that will begin at 6 p.m. Friday and last until 9 a.m. Saturday.

Meanwhile, as of 2:20 p.m. Friday, seven flights have been canceled and 104 more were delayed at Lindbergh Field due to the fog and harsh weather elsewhere in the country, according to airport officials.

Airport officials said the average delay would be just over an hour, with some flights being delayed for as many as seven. They added that the fog may affect flights landing into the airport on Friday evening.

Those traveling to or from San Diego should check their flight status here before beginning their journey.

In total, more than 1,800 flights nationwide have been canceled.
