Waveney has awoken to snowy scenes and freezing temperatures, with police reminding drivers to be wary of testing conditions.
A yellow weather warning had previously been issued by the Met Office for parts of the country, including Norfolk and Suffolk.
But the arrival of the white stuff was more of a dusting than a deluge, with just a few of centimetres settling.
All primary and high schools in Lowestoft, Beccles, Bungay and across the rest of the region are open as usual.
However, Greater Anglia has warned passengers travelling on its services to be cautious as some station platforms and car parks may be icy.
