MANILA - After staying almost stationary for nearly a day, Tropical Storm Ramon has started to move south southwest over the Philippine Sea east of northern Luzon, the state weather bureau said Saturday.

It was spotted at 4 p.m. approximately 435 kilometers east of Casiguran town, Aurora while packing maximum sustained winds of up to 65 kilometers per hour (kph) near the center and 80 kph gusts while moving at 15 kph.

Storm signal no. 1 is still up over the eastern portions of Cagayan and Isabela, and northern Aurora.

Gusty conditions associated with the northeast monsoon may still be experienced Saturday over Northern Luzon, Aurora, and Bicol Region, especially in coastal and mountainous areas.

On Saturday, light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains may be experienced over the eastern portions of Cagayan and Isabela.

On Sunday, light to moderate with occasional heavy rains may be experienced over the Cagayan and Isabela. Light to moderate with intermittent heavy rains, meanwhile, will prevail over Apayao, Kalinga, and Northern Aurora.

Residents in these areas, especially in those identified to be highly or very highly susceptible to flooding and rain-induced landslides, are advised to take precautionary measures.

Sea travel is risky, especially for small seacraft, over the seaboards of areas under storm signals, the seaboards of Northern Luzon, and the eastern seaboards of Central and Southern Luzon due to prevailing or forecast rough sea conditions.
