Temperatures in Suffolk plunged to as low as -6C overnight in what was the coldest night recorded in the region since the Beast from the East in 2018.
East Anglian-based forecaster Weatherquest has said the lowest temperature recorded in the East of England was at Marham in west Norfolk, where the mercury dipped to -9.7C.
Meteorologist Dan Holley confirmed it was the coldest night in the region since late February 2018, when the Beast from the East arrived on British shores.
The weather has also left residents across Suffolk without their regular waste collections due to the harsh conditions.
Weatherquest had previously predicted that Wednesday night could be the coldest in a decade, with temperatures as low as -11C "not out of the question".
No more snow has been forecast for the rest of the week.
