Indeed, the UK has a climate with lots of influence from the surrounding water temperatures. You can get a quick idea of the current situation via http://360.org/ (temperatures in degrees Celsius).

Here are couple I've posted on (my new...) Northern Squares in the last couple of days.
Nice images Mike! They do capture the situation quite well, it similar to the Netherlands right now. Yesterday was extremely cold (-18 C lowest temperature), but today was much more modest just a few degrees below freezing point.

Cheers,
