Great Northern will continue to run a full timetable from King’s Lynn railway station, but passengers are advised to travel as early as possible as the weather is expected to worsen later on in the day.
Updates on train services between King’s Lynn and London can be found on the National Rail website.
Skaters in the Fens are hoping the freezing temperatures will make the frozen flooded fields in the Welney Wash safe enough to skate on.
Roger Giles, of Fen Skating, said: “The snow is causing a problem, you can’t see the weak spots.”
He said those wishing to skate in the area should seek permission from the landowners.
Mr Giles has been regularly checking the condition of the ice and updating followers on the Fen Skating Twitter page.
