(KMOV) -- Hail was spotted in some parts of the St. Louis area on Monday as another round of storms swept through the region. It's part of a trend that's expected to continue through the rest of the week.

Monday kicked off with temperatures in the high 50s and precipitation in some parts of the News 4 viewing area.

“Scattered showers, mainly light, will be focused on the northern half of the News 4 viewing area,” said News 4 Meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt. “Cloudy and mild with a moderate southerly breeze.”

By 12 p.m., News 4 received reports of hail in several part of the viewing area, including Hazelwood, Wentzville, Bridgeton and Florissant. The hail did not last long, though, according to reports.

As the day goes on, Ehrhardt said more of the area will continue to see scattered showers and storms.

“There is a slight risk that some of the storms could become severe,” said Ehrhardt.

Temperatures will drop once nightfall hits, with chances of rain continuing through the evening.

Storms are expected to continue Tuesday and remain through Thursday at the earliest, though that forecast could change as the days approach.
