My weeping cherry is already blooming but has limbs growing straight up. Do I have to wait until it goes dormant to cut these back?

If you can wait, I would. Pruning after it has started blooming and leafing out makes it susceptible to disease. If you need to prune it now, it will most likely be ok, but just keep an eye on it and treat any problems that might happen quickly.
