HONOLULU (HawaiiNewsNow) -

A cold front with spotty thunderstorms clipped Oahu on Wednesday morning as it moved northeast, drenching parts of the North Shore but sparing most of Honolulu. 

The chain of thunderstorms began making landfall on Wednesday morning, and forecasters initially warned that parts of the island could see strong winds, heavy downpours, lightning strikes and even hail. 

The National Weather Service issued a Flood Advisory that was eventually allowed to expire. At one point, radar showed rain falling at up to 3 inches per hour.

The front will continue to pull up southerly winds, with abundant moisture, over the next several days. Skies will be cloudy with a chance of showers, especially in the afternoons, through most of the weekend. 

Vog and haze will likely persist, along with the Kona winds, through Monday.

A stronger disturbance is due in on Saturday night, with more possible thunderstorms.

This story will be updated.
