If you're headed up to the cottage anytime soon, it could be a little soggy and experts are warning cottage owners to keep a close eye on a system moving in.

Environment Canada is out with a special weather statement and forecasting a chance for 10-25 mm of rain in 24 hours through parts of Northern Ontario Monday night and Tuesday. The heaviest rain is expected to fall east of Georgian Bay including Parry Sound, Muskoka, and Haliburton.

There is a flood watch in place near North Bay but there are no flood watches or warnings in place in the Musoka area.

Environment Canada says the rainfall isn't expected to extreme but the ground may not absorb the rain or melting snow because it could be frozen in some areas and water levels are already high.

Cottage owners are being advised to check on their properties or have someone in the area have a look, especially if the property is in a low lying area near the lakeshore.

The area should see a few dry days after the rainfall Monday night into Tuesday evening so forecasters say that should help improve the situation.
