Waveney has escaped the worst of the weather with some households waking up to only a light dusting of snow this morning.
There were light snow showers over inland areas during the night which petered out towards the coast.
By breakfast time the sun was appearing, and the thaw that forecasters had been predicting seemed to have set in.
The mains roads remained clear, with no major incidents reported. Police have advised drivers to take care and watch out for icy patches.
A spokesman for First Buses confirmed all services, including X2 and X22 services from Lowestoft, were operating as normal but to expect some minor weather related delays.
