Rooftops and grassy areas were white when residents awoke Tuesday, but the area’s roadways were mostly clear after a dusting of snow fell Monday evening in Fayetteville.

Less than an inch of snow accumulated overnight across much of the city, but little of that snowfall remained on the roads.

After many teachers sent home computers and assignments to prepare for the potential for remote school, Fayetteville Public Schools officials notified parents early Tuesday morning that schools would remain open.

The National Weather Service forecast for Tuesday predicts cloudy skies and windy conditions, with high temperatures reaching 39 degrees.

Temperatures are expected to remain cold and windy throughout the week as a dry cold front settles into the area. Snow enters the forecast again late in week, with isolated snow flurries possible on Friday.
