— Roads in the Triangle are mostly clear as any remaining snow and ice melt, but other areas, like Nash County, are still seeing trouble spots.

Patches of ice lingered both on the sides and in the middle of secondary and community roads and streets on Monday, posing hazardous conditions for drivers east of Raleigh.

As a result, Nash-Rocky Mount schools are closed Monday along with schools in Johnston and Cumberland counties. Crews are treating the roads, but warmer temperatures headed for the viewing area will also help improve conditions.

Even in Wake County, many parking lots and small streets are covered in ice.

Classes will resume at Wendell Elementary School on Monday, although parking spots are hidden by slick, frozen layers.
