Flights arriving into San Francisco International Airport are experiencing delays today due to poor weather conditions, according to the Federal Aviation Administration.

The FAA's traffic management program is in effect, causing flights scheduled to land at SFO to delay their departures, according to the FAA.

Arriving flights are about 30 to 40 minutes behind schedule this morning, an SFO spokeswoman said. The FAA anticipates flights could be delayed more than two hours.

Three storms expected in the Bay Area beginning today will make up "one of the most powerful storms in the past two years," said Steve Anderson, a National Weather Service meteorologist.

Approximately 2 to 4 inches of rain are expected to fall in the Bay Area, and local mountains could receive up to 8 inches of rain between today and Sunday, Anderson said.
