National Park Service officials announced just last week that the peak bloom was expected between March 14 and March 17.

On Wednesday, National Park Service officials in Washington announced on Twitter that due to colder-than-average forecast temperatures this weekend, the peak bloom is now projected to be between March 19 and 22.

Peak bloom means at least 70 percent of the trees around Washington, D.C.’s Tidal Basin are blossoming. Once peak bloom is reached, the blossoms can remain on the trees from four to 10 days.
