The main roads in the area appear safer than the last couple of days, although police are telling people to only make journeys if necessary.
Across Norfolk a total of 429 schools were closed, with all schools in the area shut.
Bin collections have also been postponed yet again.
A statement from Great Yarmouth Borough Council said: “Today’s bin collections are postponed due to the severe weather. Sorry but vehicles are 26 tonnes so it’s risky to take onto slippery residential roads. If your bin is normally collected this week please take in for now. We’ll post later about plans for catching up on collections.”
