Drivers, cyclists and pedestrians, take note: Monday morning's commute could be a slippery one.

Environment Canada has issued freezing rain warnings for Ottawa, Gatineau and other regions around the Ontario-Quebec border.

The freezing rain in Ottawa should begin at around 8 a.m. and last for between one and three hours, according to the weather agency. 

The temperature will eventually warm up and the freezing rain will change to normal rain, Environment Canada said.

The afternoon commute should be much easier, at least. Any icy roads should melt by late Monday morning.
