Unfortunately it sounds as if the one Weeping Cherry top graft has died. Weeping Cherry Trees are grafted onto the trunk of a different root stock. The growth that you describe is growing from the root stock--not from the Weeping portion of the tree.

If this is a new planting--perhaps you planted it last season--the garden center or greenhouse may offer a replacement.

Here are some articles about care information.
