WASHINGTON, June 23 (UPI) -- Hot, sultry weather Tuesday forced U.S. President Barack Obama to move a news conference from the Rose Garden to the cooler confines of the White House.

Aides in the Rose Garden discovered it was already sticky, making for uncomfortable journalists and potentially unflattering video, Politico reported.

Weather for the nation's capital Tuesday called for partly sunny skies and a daytime of high of 82 degrees, Weather.com said. The dew point was a soupy 62 degrees.
