The blanket of snow created a winter wonderland for children and adults alike, with snowmen popping up across town.
And once the snow showers died down in the afternoon police received about 20 calls from residents complaining about youngsters throwing snowballs.
Chris Bell, forecaster at UEA-based Weatherquest, said between two and three inches of snow had fallen on Sunday with lowest temperatures recorded at zero. He said temperatures had improved during the day and overnight to 5C meaning very little snow was left on the ground on Monday morning.
But forecasters warn that sleet and snow could return at the weekend as temperatures were due to fall again.
