I’d be keeping a very close on these storms in Macon. A couple areas of broad rotation to the west.

That was definitely on the ground and not in a TOR warning box when I pulled up radarscope. Unless this was an error with the app, someone dropped the ball big time.

Well at least downtown Atlanta missed the bullet. What has been going on with the NWS in this area? A number of tds’s have been warned late or not at all tonight. 
 

Also, new line of storms forming out west. I thought this was supposed to be the last of it. Any tornado potential with those as well?

They're right on the cold front, so no.

Am I the only one here shocked by FCC failing to warn MULTIPLE tornadoes on the ground? I’ve never seen anything like this before.

Not really. You should see them during winter storms around here. Lol. GSP does a really good job. FCC though? Ehhh...not so much.

I believe the ATL tornado by the time the warning was issued it was on the ground already and might have even lifted.  The power outages suggest it was on ground 225-232 or so and warning came 233-234.  Those are very difficult to warn on though.  Those quick spin ups often are on ground by time warning comes
