Spring Nor’Easter Update – Diving For Cherry Blossoms

NBC4 Washington reports, “Cherry Blossoms Endangered If Temperature Drops to 24 Degrees“.

A major nor’easter is expected to sweep up the East Coast, bringing with it snow, cold temperatures and high winds. That could be dangerous for Washington’s beloved cherry blossoms.

Low temperatures of 27 degrees would result in about a 10 percent loss of blossoms, National Park Service officials said. If the temperature drops to 24 degrees or colder, it could kill as much as 90 percent of the pink-petaled wonders.
