- Fog Bank
Fog generally caused by local conditions, which extends over a small area of some hundreds of metres across, and which reduces visibility to less than one-half (1/2) nautical miles (or five eighths (5/8) of a kilometre). Multiple fog banks are sometimes referred to as patchy fog or fog patches.
