CHICAGO (CBS)– Friday morning commuters are advised to take it slow as heavy lake effect snow causes dangerous driving conditions.
CBS 2’s Mugo Odigwe is reporting live from the Mobile Weather Lab where she is seeing snow-covered roadways.
Odigwe said roads are packed with snow and visibility is very low. She said lanes on major roadways are had to see and the main issue for drivers is side streets where plow have not yet reached.
We’re in the CBS 2 Mobile Weather Lab this morning. Going as slow as possible as the snow comes down. Definitely seeing more cars on the road at this hour. Stay safe out there. @cbschicago pic.twitter.com/sfogZG2832
