Cherry blossom bloom date moved up again
It looks as if the peak days to view Washington's beloved cherry blossom trees have been moved up.
According to the National Cherry Blossom Festival's bloom watch, the average peak bloom dates are April 1 and 2, with the blooming period from March 27 through April 8.
The bloom is moving very rapidly and probably won't last the length of the festival, said National Park Service blossom expert Rob DeFeo. "This will not be a 14-day bloom," DeFeo said.
The festival runs through April 11.
The National Park Service had already moved up the peak bloom dates for the cherry blossom bloom after a spurt of warm weather March 20 and 21.
