A tropical storm warning for the Louisiana coast has been discontinued, but forecasters say eight to ten inches of rain are possible over parts of northern Florida tonight, spreading inland into Alabama and Georgia. The storm has been slowly gaining strength as it plows across the Gulf of Mexico. However, a National Hurricane Center forecaster now says Barry probably won't become a hurricane before its eye reaches land. Forecasters say coastal flooding is likely near the point of landfall, which is expected to be near Fort Walton beach, Florida. Terisa Estacio is there with the latest.

Fossett's drifting eastward across Australia toward the Pacific Ocean on the first leg of his fifth attempt to solo around the world. Fossett hopes to circle the globe in 15 days aboard the helium-filled balloon, which towers 140 feet high. Fossett will spend most of his time flying at altitudes of up to 30-thousand feet in a cramped capsule that will float and emit signals for rescuers if he's forced to ditch in the ocean. Jet stream winds will propel the balloon around the world at speeds up to 130 miles-per-hour. (------------)
