As usual Jeju is to be the first in the nation to greet spring’s messenger, the cherry blossoms.
The Jeju branch of the Korea Meteorological Association expects them to burst forth on March 24, if not a day or so sooner, in both Jeju and Seogwipo cities, about the annual average.
Although early March temperatures were slightly below seasonal averages, temperatures will rise by mid-month, teasing the blossoms out.
Deciduous tree blossoms require a certain minimum temperature to bloom and accordingly mainland provinces must wait to between April 3 and 12 for their flowers.
Flowering to full bloom takes about a week, meaning Jeju is expected to be in full bloom by March 31.
