(KMOV - ST. LOUIS) Missouri Governor Eric Greitens admitted to an extramarital affair.

In a recording obtained by KMOV News 4, a woman said that she had a sexual encounter with Gov. Greitens and that he tried to blackmail her to keep the encounter quiet. 

The details were provided by the woman's ex-husband, claiming that the sexual relationship happened between his now ex-wife and Greitens in March of 2015. 

According to the ex-husband, the recording was made just days after Greitens' and the woman's first encounter and that Greitens took a photograph of the woman to use as "blackmail."

The name of the woman has not been released and she has not made an on-the-record comment about the story.

A weak cold front that moved through Tuesday will lead to some cooler weather for Wednesday. We are also seeing an increase in cloud cover this morning so expect a mostly cloudy sky as we start the day. It is possible some of these clouds break up throughout the day so there is the chance of seeing some sunshine. Highs today are going to be on the cool-side getting into the upper 50s.
