Looking at the NWS radar out of FFC (Peachtree City), ATL is going to miss some of the heavy stuff, but it will be affected since one of those cells is to the west of them, right in the flight paths. They may get some other heavy storms later in the early evening, as there are some strong cells to the SW that could impact the airport based on the current movement of those cells.

Yeah, I flew out of DTW today, my flight was fine, but everything headed East was delayed big time. The deicing pad at the hold for 21R was packed with about 8 aircraft all headed to points east. Also saw some what I assume were diversion aircraft like an Eagle ERJ-145 (only get 135's in DTW), a CO MD-80, and two US CRJ's.
