(CNN)The cold weather sweeping through much of the US will be sticking around Friday, but temperatures generally are expected to rise some this weekend and into next week.

However, parts of the Northwest and Northeast will still be under winter weather advisories or warnings for portions of Friday.
And parts of the South -- including portions of Texas, where numerous people are without water service after days of power outages and freezing temperatures -- are scheduled to be under a hard freeze warning Friday night into Saturday morning.
    Snow was dropping in portions of the Northeast for a second day on Friday. The heaviest -- an additional 2-4 inches -- may fall in New England. Parts of the Northwest, meanwhile, is expected to see rain and mountain snow.
      Wintry weather has led to the deaths of at least 50 people across the country since February 11, including 26 people in Texas.
