We hate to disappoint you, but -- barring some unexpected act of biblical proportions -- Modesto will not have a white Christmas.
The forecast for Friday calls for a high of 56 degrees under a clear sky, although that lack of clouds will bring the temperature down at night to a chilly 32 degrees.
No moisture, no snow. Sorry.
Aside to Santa Claus: Better bring Rudolph, and get your Modesto-area route done well ahead of daybreak. The Christmas Day forecast includes patchy and freezing fog in the morning.
