(ST. LOUIS, Mo.) Missouri's only abortion clinic received an extension to their license on Friday.

Missouri's Administrative Hearing Commission extended the St. Louis Planned Parenthood's license while it reviews the state health department's decision to deny the facility's license renewal.

The commission will hear the clinic's appeal on August 1st. Until then the facility can continue to provide abortions and other reproductive health care for women.

If the commission upholds the decision to deny Planned Parenthood a license, Missouri would become the first state without an abortion clinic in almost 50 years.

A weak disturbance will bring a slight chance at seeing some rain or snow on Friday. It does appear most of this will miss us to the south and we are not expecting any accumulation. Highs Friday are in the 40s. Some nicer weather expected for the weekend with sunny skies and temperatures in the 40s and 50s.
