Synoptic approaches are important to understand the mechanisms of fog formation in fog investigations. In this study, the fog event occurred between 00:00 UTC and 23:00 UTC on November 5, 2015 at the Sabiha Gökçen International Airport was analyzed synoptically and compared with METAR and SPECI reports. The synoptic events, especially on the local scale, such as fog, are affected by in the topography of the region and other physical conditions. Due to the fog incident that took place at Sabiha Gökçen International Airport, first, the visibility has decreased from 10,000 meters to 1,000 meters in a period of 2 hours. The minimum visibility measured throughout the day was 100 meters. Observation of two effective high pressure centers in the region resulted in the presence of a stable atmospheric structure and the formation of fog
