MANILA (UPDATE)—A brewing storm or low-pressure area (LPA) will bring overnight rains in parts of the country, the state weather bureau said Saturday.

Isolated rainshowers will be experienced over Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, Pangasinan, Apayao, Abra, Benguet, Mt. Province, Ifugao, Kalinga, Batanes, Cagayan, Isabela, Quirino, Nueva Vizcaya, Palawan, and Albay in Luzon.

The weather system will also bring scattered rains over the eastern section of Visayas, and parts of Mindanao.

The weather agency said light to moderate winds coming from the south to southwest will prevail over Northern Luzon and in Aurora Province with slight to moderate seas.

PAGASA earlier said the brewing storm could develop into a tropical depression, which would be named "Falcon," the country's sixth tropical cyclone on the year. It could enter the Philippine area of responsibility on Sunday or Monday.
Residents along mountain slopes are advised to take precautionary measures against possible hazards such as landslides, mudslides, rockslides and flash floods.
