6:18 pm
he says that cost is one of the major reasons why. >> each year we bring in a live tree from the shasta mountains. it costs us about $20,000 to put up and to dispose of. so from a financial standpoint, not having to spend $20,000 each year on the tree is one of the reasons why we decided to make this change. >> okay, 20 brand for a tree is a lot of money. but that's just one of the reasons. what's the other? >> so the other big reason is an environmental concern. the executive director says in order to make that live tree look branchs from other trees ad going to be used for christmas in the park. he says the problem with that is the tree cannot be recycled afterwards. that is a lot of work for that tree. okay. we understand. thank you, anoushah. we've been telling you the olympics are in tokyo next

guess we'll have to settle for cloud cover right now. so that's moving in at the higher levels. the clouds with our pattern change, then down at the lower levels right here at the surface. you can see the fog moving into san francisco right now. pretty aggressive push. so that does mean potentially here some drizzle as we move into tonight. right now in san francisco, at 56 degrees, and no surprise here, the cloud cover, the fog stays put as we head throughout tonight. and this will be a bay area wide problem tomorrow morning. so no sunglasses needed for that morning commute. from the north bay to the south bay, i have you with that cloud cover, and there is some of that spotty drizzle right at the coastline. by the afternoon, i don't see any major clearing. so we keep the overcast right here across the bay area as we head through your thursday forecast. temperatures are dropping, though, so at least makes it feel more like november outside. not too bad here. as you hit your thursday forecast, 63 in morgan hill. 68 in antioch. 65 concord.
