Chilly Weather Delays Washington’s Famed Cherry Blossoms

WASHINGTON (April 5, 2013)--It's spring in the nation's capital, but the city’s famed cherry trees don't know it.

Chilly weather has delayed the blossoming of the trees, forcing the National Park Service to update the predicted peak bloom for a second time, moving it back a few days.

First, the trees were expected to flower late last month, and then this week.

Now, the experts say the trees will blossom this coming weekend.

The cherry blossoms are a big attraction, drawing about 1 million visitors each spring.
