Fog Causes Flight Chaos in N WA and BC; Delta B757 Diverted

A nuisance weather system that has coated parts of northwestern Washington, Vancouver Island and the Lower Mainland of British Columbia with fog has once again caused several flight cancellations and delays.

Late Monday thick fog descended over the region , cancelling flights in and out of Vancouver, Victoria, Seattle, Bellingham and smaller airports. It's the same lingering system that brought flight havoc last Friday. Seaplane operations in the area will likely be shutdown Tuesday morning.

Separately a Delta Airlines Boeing 757 from Atlanta was diverted shortly before its descent into its final destination, Seattle, Monday evening - instead landing in the Tri-Cities Airport in southeastern Washington. A Delta official blamed the diversion of DL2329 on unspecified mechanical problems, adding that passengers were to be bused to Seattle - a distance of about 200 miles. 

The problematic flight was due to touch down in Seattle at 10:25pm Monday. but landed instead in the Tri-Cities at 10pm, according to Delta.
