Parts of Suffolk and Essex have woken up to a light dusting of snow for the first time in 2020.
A yellow weather warning was issued for the east of England today, with towns and villages reporting wintry showers during the morning rush-hour.
West Suffolk saw most of the showers, with Mildenhall, Lakenheath and Bury St Edmunds waking up to blankets of snow and patches of ice.
The north west of Ipswich has also seen snowflakes drop and settle in parts - despite the wet conditions on the ground.
Stansted Airport in Essex was the first to see snow around 5am today, with the Met Office yellow weather warning for snow and ice still in place for the east of England.
