A Veloviewer tweet shows snow falling on the road to Settle:

Meanwhile, Metro's article shows some wintry conditions on the route of Stage 3.

The BBC's forecast from Friday to Sunday is for cold temperatures. Saturday looks to be the best day, with sunshine and isolated showers, while it'll be windy with rain and hill snow on Friday and Sunday.

The conditions were much better last week, with warm sunshine as JLT Condor recce'd the Stage 3 route to Scarborough.
