The U.S. Department of Homeland Security has granted Missouri another extension to comply with the REAL ID Act.

The DHS granted Missouri a grace period through Jan. 21, 2019. During this time, federal agencies will continue to accept Missouri-issued driver licenses and ID cards for official purposes, including domestic air travel.

The current extension ends Oct. 10 but the Missouri Department of Revenue said Missourians should have no issue using their state-issued driver licenses and ID cards when boarding a domestic flight or for other official purposes after Oct. 10.

The federal REAL ID Act was passed in 2005.

A strong cold front has moved through NW Missouri & NE Kansas. Our winds will change behind the front to the north, allowing for much cooler, drier and pleasant air move in. High temperatures on Friday only going up to 70 degrees with some cloud cover.
