President Obama is traveling to California on Friday to discuss the severe drought that is threatening farmers' livelihood and meet with the king of Jordan.

But he is also going to spend the weekend relaxing at Sunnylands, a desert estate in Rancho Mirage, Calif.

The president will spend the evening of Valentine's Day dining with King Abdullah II of Jordan followed by two days of golf, according to a senior administration official to the New York Times.

The forecast in Rancho Mirage is calling for temperatures in the upper 80's.

The Times reports that Michelle Obama and his daughters "will be away on their own travels" over the weekend.

CORRECTION: The name of the estate where Obama is staying has been corrected in this story. The Washington Examiner regrets the error.
