Heads Up: Washington, D.C.s Cherry Blossoms Are Blooming Early This Year
Twenty20

Every year, more than a million people flock to Washington, D.C. to behold the beyond beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom.

But while that normally happens in early April, this year's a little bit different. 

According to The National Park Service, this years' blossoms are expected to reach peak bloom from March 27 through March 31.

Why? It's partly because of a hotter-than-usual February. The NPS says the trees typically bloom for a period of several days, though the length of the blooming period depends on the weather. Cool, calm weather can extend the length of the bloom, and rainy, windy conditions can bring an abrupt end to the blossoms.
