Dozens of flights were delayed or cancelled at the San Diego International Airport Saturday due to inclement winter weather, the San Diego Airport Authority confirmed.

As of 12:15 p.m., at least eight American Airlines flights to and from Dallas had been cancelled due to the strong winter storm barreling down on Texas.

In addition, airport officials said approximately 60 flights were delayed at Lindbergh Field due to weather. Delays ranged from 20 minutes to two hours and involved both arriving and departing flights spanning cities such as Denver, San Francisco, San Jose, Calif., and Oakland, Calif.

The Airport Authority said weather was playing a major factor in the delays and cancellations system-wide.

As the day progresses, travelers can check their flight’s status on the San Diego Airport website.

This weekend, San Diego itself is experiencing a cold snap that includes much colder than normal temperatures, high wind, rain and even snow in local mountain area. Get local weather updates here.
