(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) Yesterday's school shooting in Maryland comes just days before a national march demanding action on gun violence and safety.

On Saturday, students and supporters will rally at the parking lot by the old Ryan's on the North Belt Highway. "March for our Lives" calls for safer schools and gun control.

Those marching on Saturday will be joined by thousands of others marching across the country hoping to get the attention of lawmakers in Washington D.C. that now is to change America's gun laws.

"What a lot of people have a problem with is 'oh they're taking away our guns, they want our guns gone'. no. we just want there to be more safety measures, more precautions in place so people don't have to worry about this as much as they do because right now it's a really prevalent worry for a lot of people."

The march starts at 9 a.m. and it's expected to last two hours.

Skies have started to cloud up late today after we saw sunshine for the first half of the day. Clouds will start to break apart again this afternoon with temperatures warming into the lower 50s. The majority of today will be dry, but there could be a few areas of light drizzle later this evening mainly to the south of the St. Joseph area. Temperatures will continue to warm on Saturday making a run for 60 under mostly sunny skies. A few clouds will move into the area Saturday evening as a cold front moves through. That cold front could bring us a few areas of light rain once again, but most areas will see less than a tenth of an inch of rain.. Temperatures will be slightly cooler on Sunday because of the cold front, but will quickly start to warm into the 50s by the beginning of next week.
