I'm sitting at the boarding area at PDX waiting for a QX PDX-SEA flight to take me onwards to CDG and CPH. There are rumours that there's a complete ground hold at SEA due to fog. Is this true? Can anybody add anything to the situation?

Thanks!

SEA is reporting 1 1/4 mi. visibility. Clouds broken at 300 ft and overcast at 500 feet. Not good conditions to be flying in.

Sorry ...just realised you are on the way to SEA - arrivals are experiencing longer delays than departures

'Due to WEATHER / LOW VISIBILITY, there is a Traffic Management Program in effect for traffic arriving Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, Seattle, WA (SEA). This is causing some arriving flights to be delayed an average of 1 hour and 29 minutes. '
