Though not official, my station is mounted on a north facing wall of my house which will not see the sun until 5-30pm

The CEFAS Smartbuoy moored at the Mersey Bar Light is currently offline, but the Barrow Waverider buoy is online and currently reporting a sea surface temperature of 7.65C which is pretty representative of Liverpool Bay waters.
Edit: current buoy sites bordering UK coasts are all around 7-8C. The highest SSTs are off the Hebrides with around 9C. The influence of the Gulf Stream is obvious.
