(ST. JOSEPH, Mo) Across the country, flower shops are blooming with business. Flowers are flying off the shelf at a 50% increase this year compared to last year, and St. Joseph is no different.

“I mean we even thought we would be slow during last summer time because that's our slow season, and it was not slow. So we pretty much the last year, have been very busy, and this valentine's day is extremely busy like the ones in the past," said Butchart Flowers Owner, Michelle Leimbach.

People are not just buying flowers for Valentines Day, they are buying them for decorations and bringing life into their homes.

“Due to people being home more, they are buying more plants and flowers for their home, so that helps, so I am expecting an increase in flowers this year, flowers, candy, stuffed animals,” said Leimbach

Above average temperatures will continue today with highs in the mid to upper 80s. A cold front will move through the area late this afternoon in the early evening giving us the chance for a few showers and storms. A few isolated showers and storms have developed ahead of the front and could give us the chance for rain late this morning as well. Winds will be breezy today from the south ahead of our cold front. Once the cold front moves through, temperatures will be much cooler for the rest of the week. Highs will be below average in the 70s. Dry and sunny conditions look to continue through the rest of the work week into the weekend.
