Been pretty heavy fog around here the last few mornings (I live about 6 miles south of LAX). Yesterday morning, driving to work, I couldn't see more than about 300 feet in front of the car.

Fun times.

I was watching actually because another associate had a client on an inbound SAN flight and with the 3hr time change, the other associate asked me to complete the trip with client. We actually travel with the client, from our home that is, but we stay with the client until actual arrival, and it was anywhere from 830pm ish to almost but before midnight, and flights into SAN were all diverting to either PHX, ONT, or LAX. I think things opened back up before midnight because I do remember a UA737 getting in from DEN and a Skywest EM2 arriving from LAX. I think PSP also got an aircraft or two, but through those 2-3 hours, nothing was getting into SAN

LAS got at least one diversion - a friend who was supposed to arrive last night at 9:30 called me this morning letting me know he finally got in - after spending the night in Las Vegas!! Fog closed the airport and he wasn't able to get in.

Where I live in North Park, just a few miles northeast of SAN, there wasn't a drop.

Of all the weather problems out there, it seems pathetic to me that fog is still the problem that it is...maybe it's just the maddening nature that it shuts everything down without it being dangerous like a thunderstorm or high winds.

Was working WN gates in SAN last night, fogged in probably 3 times for the day. Most of our planes went to ONT. We had a SMF,OAK and ABQ flight that were in danger of curfew in SAN. We only had one aircraft, so we did a SAN-ONT-SMF-OAK flight.


sit on the Captain side when you fly into SAN

A Cathy 744 diverted also, plus a slew of others. Air Canada in particular.

Well, if it's thin enough that you can still land (say, with CAT II or III ILS, which is still pretty heavy fog), then the airport can stay open - albeit with reduced arrival rates.

But that was some damn thick fog over the past few mornings. Considering that there's no autotaxi function, and that pretty much negates CATIIIc operations, then it would indeed be dangerous to have planes moving around an airport in extremely thick fog.

I mean, I had to slow down to read street signs before they zipped past me on Wednesday morning, because I couldn't make them out till I was about 100 feet away. And airplanes are going 4 times as fast as I was going.

Maybe it's just my frustration over what some people consider "thick fog". Having grown up in Bakersfield, home of the thickest fog on the planet (nasty cold yucky "tule fog"), southern California fog just doesn't compare.

But it all comes down to a matter of safety. Sad that some kind of wind can't be generated to "disperse" it, but that's life.
