Despite the rain chance, temps will still climb into the upper 80s and lower 90s. FIRST ALERT: We are tracking more scattered showers and thunderstorms for Tuesday.

Taking a standBlack Lives Matter protesters blocked the Interstate 40 bridge in Memphis for several hours Sunday night. The protest remained peaceful. There are no reports of injuries or arrests.

Body found: A death investigation is underway in Marshall County, Kentucky after someone found a body in a field early Sunday morning. An autopsy is scheduled for today.
