Drivers have been warned to take care on the region's roads tonight, with gritters out again as temperatures dip below freezing once again.
Norfolk County Council said it was sending its gritters out with another frosty night ahead. They urged people to take extra care if making a journey.
Parts of the county saw the mercury drop to almost -3C on Friday night, while Suffolk experienced lows of -4.5C.
Meteorologist Dan Holley, from the Norwich-based forecaster Weatherquest, said for some areas it was the coldest night since late January.
Weatherquest forecaster Chris Bell said Saturday night would not be quite so chilly, but temperatures would still drop below freezing. He said: “It will stay dry but cold. We’ll see clear spells and just a little bit of patchy cloud. Temperatures dropping off, probably not quite as cold as Friday night into Saturday morning, but we are still looking at lows around about freezing for most of the region and those colder-prone spots down to -2C and maybe -3C.”
He said Sunday would be a frosty start and another cold day, but with the chance of some showers in the afternoon, possibly in west Norfolk.
He said temperatures would only reach of highs of 6C or 7C and it could be wet on Monday morning, although temperatures could get up to as high as 10C.
