(JEFFERSON CITY) Legalizing medical marijuana cleared a hurdle in the state legislature.

The Missouri House voted Tuesday to legalize medical marijuana.

The bill allows anyone over 18 with a terminal illness or people with Alzheimer's disease, cancer or post-traumatic stress disorder to use smokeless medical marijuana.

The bill still needs to pass the Senate.

After Monday's system moves away, we will see the return of sunshine and even warmer temperatures for Tuesday. Highs Tuesday will likely be in the lower 60s. The warm weather continues until the next chance for widespread rain that comes late Wednesday into Thursday morning as another cold front pushes through the area. We'll have cloudy skies by Thursday afternoon, but it will be much cooler with highs in the mid 40s.
