Luzon and Western Visayas should prepare for wet weather as a low pressure area (LPA) might bring moderate to heavy rains Saturday, weather bureau PAGASA said.

In its 24-hour bulletin issued at 4 a.m., PAGASA said that an LPA was spotted 40 kms north northeast of Alabat, Quezon. The southwest monsoon or "habagat" is also affecting the western section of Southern Luzon and Visayas.

Cloudy skies with scattered rain showers and thunderstorms are expected in these areas, while the rest of the country may be overcast and might experience isolated rains, the weather bureau said.

Meanwhile, light to moderate rains might persist in Oriental Mindoro, Marinduque and Romblon for one to two hours Saturday morning, PAGASA said in its 9:20 a.m. rainfall advisory.

"All are advised to take precautionary measures against possible occurrence of floods in low lying areas, flashfloods and landslides in mountainous areas," PAGASA said.
