Snow fell heavily in Beccles this lunchtime as the seasonal weather caught up with Waveney..
The region appeared to have escaped the heaviest of the snowfall overnight, but from 1pm large flakes started to fall and settle in the town.
There were even reports of thunder just before the snow started.
The A146 was slow moving between Hales and Norwich as commuters lined the road on their way into the city, and at 2.30pm there were reports of it taking drivers 50 minutes to drive from Hales to Yelverton.
While much of the region experienced snowfall overnight, families in Waveney woke up to a light dusting.
