D.C.’s Cherry Blossom Peak Bloom Date Pushed Back By 10 Days Thanks To Winter Weather

If you haven’t yet booked your travel to Washington D.C. to see the iconic cherry blossoms, there’s still time! While initial reports actually had the blooms peaking earlier this year than normal, the extreme blasts of repeated cold weather patterns over the past few weeks has delayed the arrival of the beautiful peak blooms on the Tidal Basin. The National Park Service, which tends to the spectacular trees, now says the peak will occur between March 27 and March 31. Other weather experts push back the date even further, to the beginning of April.
