Does anyone know how bad the snow fall and ice will be in the peaks tomorrow?

Not without a crystal ball! Light snow in the south Peak just now that will probably hang around. Around Hathersage had some in the day today which was sticking. I think crags being wet perhaps more of an issue than actual snow.

Full on blizzard just outside Sheffield right now. Forecast to be sunny later and with the strong wind things could dry out but it will be uncomfortably cold. Rather you than me.

Snow is easing off now in Froggatt.
Had about an inch of snow. Forecast is sunny, temp will be around zero all day, so I guess some of it will hang around and there'll be a fair bit of melt run-off. It's also very windy, so there's going to be significant wind chill from wnw.
If you're bouldering then Burbage West might be ok. Wrap up well ;-)

Some useful links. Often its traffic that is the limiting factor in snow... in shelter from the wind bouldering conditions could be really good.

Winter right? peaks. Mmmmmm ? I'd say wet and windy would be your best bet. Or look at the bbc weather.
