I'd watch the cell behind it closely in downtown ATL. It's moving over the same feeder band.  

I'm not good at telling these things but I thought it looked like it might be trying to wrap up a bit as well.\\

Couple scans ago I thought it was trying to push out a hook, looks fairly normal right now.

First warning was issued for Newnan at 11:44. Looks like they had 20-30 minutes of lead time. 
 

Great job NWS Peachtree City. I know it was a slam dunk signature most of the time but they didn’t play the waiting game. Hopefully saved some lives with a long warning.

I remember when we first started talking about that supercell when it was in SE MS... Wild ride. Hopefully folks in front of these significant tornadoes it produced were able to get somewhere safe. Nighttime tornadoes suck..

I’m hoping similar to Dayton, fact it was so late that no one was in cars or away from shelter. An ef4 or 5 at night is catastrophic due to fact shelter offers little protection...but maybe if we get away with ef2/3 shelter helped some and people were able to get in best possible location to ride it out.
