MANILA -- Residents of Bicol, parts of Visayas, and southern Luzon might need to watch for rain and lightning as a low pressure area (LPA) looms east of Catanduanes. 

At 3 a.m. Saturday, the LPA was estimated by weather bureau PAGASA to be 525 kilometers east-southeast of Virac, Catanduanes.

This might cause cloudy skies and scattered rainshowers and thunderstorms over Bicol, eastern Visayas, Cagayan, Isabela, and Quezon, PAGASA said in its 24-hour forecast issued early Saturday morning.

The public should watch out for scattered lightning, and flooding which might be caused by light to moderate rain which can grow occasionally heavy, PAGASA said.

Metro Manila and the rest of the country can expect partly cloudy to cloudy skies, with isolated showers in the afternoon and evening.

Coastal waters are expected to be rough in northern and central Luzon, as well as Quezon, Bicol, and eastern Visayas.
