SEARING temperatures will set in after the city baked in extreme heat this week.
A new UK record of 40.3C was set in Coningsby, Lincolnshire on Tuesday, while Brighton saw thousands take to the beach to enjoy a toasty 33.
But the scorching heat is over, with temperatures in the mid-20s forecast for the remainder of this week and throughout next week.
Temperatures are likely to range between 22°C and 24°C for the next 11 days and the weather will be partly cloudy with some welcome shade.
The Met Office had issued a red weather warning for some parts of England on Monday and Tuesday, while England, Wales and parts of Scotland were placed under yellow warnings.
Both meant that areas had to reckon with extreme heat and danger to life.
A new overnight record was also set on Monday night, with temperatures remaining in the mid-20s, meaning uncomfortable sleep for many.
