President Obama is slated to appear on “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” in Burbank Wednesday evening, two weeks before election day.

The Los Angeles Police Department has issued a warning for drivers to expect traffic delays on streets surrounding LAX and in Burbank between 4:25 and 8:45 p.m. as the president's motorcade is expected to snarl traffic.

The show tapes at NBC Studios, on West Alameda Avenue between California Street and Bob Hope Drive. Police are warning drivers to avoid the area.

The appearance marks Obama's fifth on the show and third during his presidency, according to NBC.

During his visit in 2009, he became the first sitting president to appear on a late-night talk show, according to NBC. His most recent visit was last October.
