On top of the freezing rain in the North Peace around Fort St. John, Environment Canada has now also issued a freezing rain warning for much of the Alberta Peace.
That area could see freezing rain Monday morning before it clears up in the afternoon.
See the full warning below.

Freezing Rain Warnings are issued when rain falling in sub-zero temperatures creates ice build-up and icy surfaces.
