New Delhi, June 12

The maximum temperature in Delhi on Wednesday settled at 44.7 degrees Celsius, the Indian Meteorological Department (IMD) said as it predicted the arrival of monsoon in the city by June end.

The Najafgarh weather station recorded the highest temperature in the city at 47.7 degrees Celsius, they said.
