Discoloration of dogwood blooms

I live in central North Carolina. Every year I look forward to the blooming
of the dogwood trees. This year I noticed on some of the early blooming
trees a discoloration in the flowers--white dogwoods had a yellow tint and
pink dogwoods were closer to red. Over the past few days, however, many more
trees have bloomed which look fine. Does anyone know what's going on here?
I read a few years ago about a dogwood blight that was mainly affecting higher
elevations. I hope my observations and this disease are disconnected.
Thanks for any relevant information,
