(ST. JOSEPH, Mo.) A new memorial has been erected in front of the Missouri State Highway Patrol Troop H Headquarters. 

The memorial honors three state troopers who've died in the line of duty. 

Trooper Fred Gutherie, Cpl. Henry Bruns, and Sgt. Robert Kimberling's names are displayed on the permanent memorial.

"We thought it would be fitting to put a more permanent memorial here," Sgt. Jake Angle, MSHP Troop H said. "It's in honor of those officers here in Troop H who have made the ultimate sacrifice for our state."

The Highway Patrol officially dedicated the new memorial on Monday.

Thursday we will see lots of sunshine as a area of high pressure continues to move into northeast Kansas and northwest Missouri. The colder temperatures will be with us as highs will be in the lower 30s on Thursday. Then over the weekend we will warm up dramatically with highs in the 50s.
