Cold water is slightly more compressible than hot water (assuming that both these water parcels have appropriate salinities to make them equal densities) at the same pressure because the molecules in hot water have a higher kinetic energy. Thus pressure will need to do more work to compress hotter water as it doesn't want to be held together. Colder water on ...
