Prevailing Winds

The majority of the wind comes from the oceans in the East. This effects Fayetteville because it can have bigger chances of cold fronts and little wind.

What type of city is it?

This is a smaller city, not very big at all. Due to lack of buildings, people, etc, being compacted together like they would be in larger cities, it would lean towards having a colder temperature.

Hurricane & Tornado prone?

Hurricanes are very unlikely to get all the way to Fayetteville due to how far inland it is from the coast. Tornadoes are more than likely to occur in this area because this is a type of climate that mixes with hot and cold air which encourages tornado weather.

Mountains

Fayetteville is somewhat close to large and small mountains, none are coastal. The mountain's proximity can have an effect on the weather due to the elevation and because they tend to be on the Leeward side.

Oceans

It is a couple hours drive from the Atlantic Ocean. The ocean does not effect this city in an impactful way because Fayetteville is not fairly close to the ocean.

If my city was moved closer to the ocean, it would more than likely have an increase of cold fronts because we are in between the Equator and North Pole which means that the weather will have a happy medium.
