Over a hundred flights were delayed and at least 10 were canceled Friday at San Diego Lindbergh Field reported NBC San Diego on January 3, 2014.

Fog in San Diego and the ripple effect of Winter Storm Hercules contributed to the flight delays and cancellations.

Officials from the National Weather Service issued a dense fog advisory for coastal cities that went into effect at 6 p.m. Friday and will remain until 9 a.m. Saturday.

Some flights were delayed more than seven hours.

The majority of the flight delays from Lindbergh Field were on Southwest Airlines. Southwest Flights from cities outside San Diego have been heavily impacted by Winter Storm Hercules said Katie Jones, Public Relations Specialist for the San Diego County Regional Airport Authority.

"Southwest does see the majority of the delays, but they're also the majority of our traffic,'' Jones said.

Passengers traveling from and to San Diego can check their flights on the flight status page of the San Diego airport here. Passengers can also check the status of their flights with their airlines.

Lindbergh Field isn’t the only airport affected by weather. Over 1,800 flights across the United States have been canceled.
