Tonight Washington DC’s famed cherry blossoms are in real trouble. The winter storm that hit on Tuesday dropped a few inches of snow in the area and many flowers were coated in ice.
But it’s tonight that’s the true test… as overnight lows will drop well below freezing. If it drops to 24 or lower, 90 percent of the pink petals will die. The forecast is calling for a low of 23. This means for the first time in close to a century a peak bloom may not happen at all.
