Not if the delays are due to a cloud deck in SFO. Even if it's ORD WX, the LH widebodies are going to be at top priority in and out. For a same ticket connection where missing a day at the destination wasn't absolutely critical, I would be happy to connect at 2h00. But connecting to an SQ-plated LH F award with no formal IRROPS protection? An extra two hours in the Polaris Lounge seems like a very reasonable price for the safety that only a truly extraordinarily delay is going to mess up the itinerary.
