Temperatures in the teens could lead to freezing fog overnight and Tuesday morning, but highs across the state are expected to climb into at least the 40s for the rest of the week.

Along with sunny skies, the temperatures should finally melt what remains of the weekend's ice storm, officials said. Officials with Oklahoma Gas and Electric Co. said Monday their crews restored power to the last customers who lost electricity during the storm.

The overnight low was forecast to be 18 degrees, the coldest of the week, National Weather Service meteorologists said.

Highs are expected to be in the 40s Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. Friday's high is forecast at 51 degrees.

No further precipitation is in the forecast.
