Tremendous heat is expecting the participants in the 2022 Candidates Tournament. Madrid temperatures are expected to stay around 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Farenheit) at least through the first week of the event. Chess fans speculate it is exactly the Candidates Tournament tension that rises the temperatures in the city, but Accuweather specifies that the reason is movement of air masses from North Africa.
