Washington DC's cherry blossoms reached peak bloom on March 21. They are now done for the year. You can find the most updates from the 2022 bloom here.

The National Park Service predicts peak bloom will fall around March 22-25.

Last night, the Washington Post‘s Capital Weather Gang posted their own prediction that peak bloom will occur around March 24, or in a window of March 22-26.

These are around a week earlier than the average of the past few decades.
