Posted by Steve Taggart

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - This past weekend's warm and sunny weather is causing the cherry blossoms in Washington D.C. to blossom a bit earlier than expected.

The national park service has revised its prediction dates and now say the best show is expected between April 1st through April 4th.

More trees will be showing their pink blooms this weekend and will continue through April 9th.

The 2010 National Cherry Blossom Festival runs from March 27 to April 11.
