(KMOV) -- A severe storm system that dropped large hail in portions of the St. Louis region Friday morning has moved on, but more potentially severe storms are moving through the News 4 viewing area and they could bring some snow.

According to meteorologist Kent Ehrhardt, severe thunderstorm warnings have expired for all counties in the viewing area.  A severe thunder storm watch remains in effect until at 11:00 a.m.

The large storm that moved through the St. Louis region Friday morning, dumped large hail in some areas, but there have been no reports of significant damage so far.  Residents in Herman, Missouri reported getting two inch sized hail earlier Friday morning.  A News 4 viewer from Alhambra, Illinois reported receiving hail as large as a tennis ball.

Another system is developing northwest of St. Louis could bring the region the potential for snow flurries.

With temperatures in much of the area being in the 40s and 50s, freezing will not be an issue.  Any snow that falls is not expected to accumulate.
