It could be a challenging commute for drivers across parts of northern and eastern Ontario Monday. 

Freezing rain developed ahead of a warm front, prompting Environment Canada to issue a freezing rain warning from Algonquin through to Brockville. 

While most schools remain open across the region, several school buses were cancelled due to the icy conditions. 

Motorists should be prepared for hazardous winter driving conditions. As well, pedestrians should exercise extreme caution if outdoors as untreated roads and sidewalks may become icy and very slippery. 

The same system already left between 15 and 30 millimetres of rain across the Greater Toronto Area over the weekend. 

In North Bay and parts of northern Ontario, communities received prolonged periods of freezing rain for up to 12 hours on Sunday.
