In reply to GL: Gosh - someone posting a climbing related question on a climbing forum and all you can do is call him a nob. Great! Well done. Give yourself a pat on the back.

To the OP - no idea, but looking at some lake district webcams, there is a bit of snow on the tops, but whether it has frozen is a different matter.

Take a look at the winter climbing forum, plenty of information there.
Also, check out the weather forecasts :-(

On Helvellyn on Wednesday, it was powdery and unconsolidated, apart from the odd bits of windslab. Not sure what yesterday's rain/sleet/snow will have added - it's white-ish lower down, but the cover higher up looks to have stripped back a bit into the gullies rather than being blanket cover - so possibly done a freeze thaw? Or maybe it's just blown about, it was a touch breezy on Wed....
