This year, the month of May in Delhi is feeling much cooler than usual, despite being known for its scorching heat and bright sun. Even in April, the weather was quite comfortable. There was only one day, April 26, 2024, when the temperature reached 40 degrees Celsius. Since then, the temperature has dropped, staying below normal for the past five days. There has been a drop of about 5 degrees Celsius in the maximum temperature. Today, May 3, also started with mild weather.

The weather department predicts that today’s temperature (May 3) could reach 38 degrees Celsius, which is 3 degrees higher than yesterday. The sky is expected to remain clear today, which could lead to a rise in temperature. Strong surface winds are also expected today. However, there could be a gradual increase in temperature in the coming days, with Friday’s maximum temperature possibly reaching 38 degrees Celsius.

There is a possibility of light rain over the weekend, but there could also be a significant increase in temperature. The maximum temperature in Delhi could reach 40 degrees Celsius on Saturday and Sunday. It seems like the summer heat is about to intensify in Delhi. By May 8, Delhi’s temperature could exceed 40 degrees. However, there is currently no forecast of strong winds or rain in Delhi after the weekend.

According to Skymet, a weather forecasting agency, the temperature dropped to 33.7 degrees Celsius on May 1, which was 5 degrees Celsius below normal. The minimum temperature also dropped below 20 degrees Celsius on May 2 in the morning. This year, the start of May has been as cool as last year. On May 1, 2023, the maximum temperature was recorded at 26.1 degrees Celsius, which was 12 degrees Celsius below normal.

On Thursday, the Delhi Police reached out to Google to request information regarding the IP address of an email that threatened to bomb North Block in Delhi. The Ministry of Home Affairs (MHA) office, located in North Block, received the alarming email on Wednesday, causing significant concern. However, after a thorough search, no suspicious items were found, and the threat was determined to be a false alarm, according to official sources.

The Delhi Police Special Cell, alongside local police, is currently investigating the incident. An official indicated that a formal letter has been dispatched to Google, seeking details about the IP address linked to the threatening email sent to the Home Ministry. This email reportedly warned of a bomb placed in the building, which would soon explode.

Further investigation revealed that the email was sent from an anonymous Gmail address, and authorities suspect the sender utilized a VPN to obscure the IP address, complicating efforts to trace its origin. A senior police officer mentioned that a case might be registered at the appropriate police station to facilitate a more detailed investigation.
