I dabbled in monitoring E.Antarctica and noticed some days this winter where it was only -10 to -20°C. This is not normal. Since there is seawater underneath the ice, and with the warmth in the oceans, I mean, yikes! What can you say about the Antarctic Winter in general?

Does it stay liquid, at least partially, year-round? If so, how?

The liquid layer is covered by smooth ice that is around 4 to 5 meters thick.
