Snow fell across the region this afternoon as predicted bad weather hit the area.
While no more snow is predicted to fall this evening, forecasters are warning that the wet roads could freeze, leading to icy conditions for motorists overnight and tomorrow morning.
Temperatures dropped as the snow clouds set in and the flakes began to fall at around 2pm in Fakenham and Dereham before moving across Norfolk.
It started to snow in Norwich at about 3pm.
Norfolk Constabulary is reminding motorists to take extra care in bad weather, after officers were called to two road traffic crashes, in which the poor weather and road conditions are believed to have been a contributory factor.

The first involved a Honda Jazz car which hit a bollard in Park Lane, North Walsham. No one was injured in the 2.28pm crash.
The second happened at 2.32pm on the A1122 at Salters Lode, near Downham Market. The fire service and ambulance service were called after one car crashed and blocked the road for around 20 minutes, but no one was hurt.
Earlier in the day flights from Norwich Airport to Manchester were delayed due to snow in the north of the country however flights have now returned to normal.

A yellow warning of snow and ice has been issued for the East of England, from 3pm today until 11am tomorrow morning (Friday).
Chris Bell, forecaster at Norwich-based Weatherquest, said most of Norfolk had had a light dusting of snow, after snow showers entered the west of the county just after midday and moved across during the afternoon, clearing by about 4.30pm.
He said: 'It's dry now and will probably stay that way for most of the evening and overnight.
'But with the sleet and snow showers we have had as temperatures drop to freezing overnight it could become icy on the roads around late evening and early tomorrow morning.'
Slightly milder air is due tomorrow, and there could be some slight patches of sleet and rain at times.
