Exit runway, traffic on base. [Solved]

When telling an aircraft to exit the runway and their are planes holding short of the runway, is the command “Exit runway, please expedite, traffic on base.” Now I always thought this meant that their were planes on base as in waiting at your airport. But now I’m starting to think that relates to incoming aircraft on the base leg of a patttern. I’m pretty sure it’s referencing the pattern leg but I’m not 100% sure! Thanks!

Yes, traffic on the base leg of the pattern.


This refers to when the traffic is inbound on the base leg.

I know what a pattern is, I was just confused on this one command! Thanks though.
