NEW Year’s Eve – Boracay 2014

These are the worse weather conditions for this very last day of the year 2014.

Right now (5 pm) it rains heavily, it’s cool and it is windy. In addition the high tide is pushing the masses of people together. There is to much water all around. The high tide will come up until 6:40 pm so the White Beach will be flooded.

No good outlook for the big party. The thousands of party people have to squeeze together for cover.

According to windfinder it should be 23 knots. It shows, that Windguru and Co. is not really reliable.

But as a low pressure will close in to the Philippines, the situation will change within the next few hours. The skys will turn cloudy and the wind will pick up.
