CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe reported live from the weather lab where she saw frozen streets, still snow covered from Monday’s winter weather.

She said while main streets are paved, some city side streets still pose a threat to drivers.

Black ice is causing dangerous driving and walking conditions. Drivers should allow for extra time during the morning commute and anyone walking downtown should take it slow.

Chicago warming centers will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The Garfield Community Service Center at 10 South Kedzie, is open 24 hours. Check out a full list below:
