Early Blooming Expected for DC Cherry Blossoms

With a mild winter winding down in the Washington, D.C., region, the National Park Service said fans of D.C.'s famed Yoshino cherry blossoms will reach peak bloom early this year.

On Thursday, the Park Service said to expect full blooms from March 23 to March 26.

On Tuesday, The Capital Weather Gang at the Washington Post said this winter's abnormally mild weather will likely cause the cherry blossoms at the Tidal Basin to reach peak bloom between March 19 and 23 — about 10 days earlier than normal and one of the earliest peak blooms on record.

That would be good as it will fall just after Easter.  The blossoms are always a pleasant sight.

Consider your timing if you plan to visit DC to see the cherry blossoms.

Roy Kelley - I took my children to D.C. during Cherry Blossom season. We went by the Amtrack train. The trees were so beautiful! I will never forget it because it seemed as though the Cherry Blossoms were welcoming us to our Nation's Capital. There was so much to see and things to do, we had a great time.

We visited several years ago to see the cherry blossoms. It was hard to time it perfectly but we did manage to see the tail end which was still very beautiful.
