But in this report by ABC News 7, a local expert says if the milder temps continue, the blooming could be one to two weeks ahead of schedule.
At least it should be warm this year, and important to remember is:
"The Peak Bloom Date is defined as the day on which 70 percent of the blossoms of the Yoshino cherry trees that surround the Tidal Basin are open. The Blooming Period is defined as that period when 20 percent of the blossoms are open until the petals fall and leaves appear. The blooming period starts several days before the peak bloom date and can last as long as 14 days, however, frost or high temperatures combined with wind or rain can shorten this period."
