have grown since then. >> i had no idea this was going to be where i'm at now. but, i started something. >> reporter: today he delivered 679 frozen turkeys. and he will do the same thing again right before christmas. his donation is so large that beyond the holidays, it will help provide food for saint anthony's kitchen throughout the year. it is an amazing example of what can happen when one guy commits himself to a simple idea. >> i'm not extraordinary. actually, i'm not wealthy. i feel the need to put food on the table of those who don't have the food. number one. and number two, i wanted to do something for my community. >> to me, he serves as a great example to all of us what we can get done. he is a normal person who want to do something good and has done it a long time with a lot of impact. >> reporter: his original donation request has now grown to thousands. and he has

6:15 pm
>> this holiday season is operation santa's 110th anniversary. well, we could put a little rain on the list, but to no avail so far. >> we had a clear sky. just as we got to sunset, clouds showed up. just enough that they gave us this incredible sunset. this is the camera on mount diablo taking a look off toward the west. i will hit play on that. watch the clouds move slowly. you will see the colors brighten up. we will change the vantage point using the same camera. we will advance it to right now and the lights of walnut creek all of a sudden appear as to the lights on the other side of the east bay hills looking out toward mount tam. and you can still see some leftover clouds. it would be nice if we could hold onto some of those because it would act like a blanket if we can keep them. and it would temperatures
6:16 pm
from getting so cold. we will be looking at mainly clear skies. so, san jose, your temperatures went down. you got down to right around 40 this morning. you are probably going to do that again tomorrow. but it is really the north bay valleys that feel this the month and we will see morning lows once again dip down to freezing. or at least right on the verge. got down to 30 this morning in santa rosa. you are a balmy 54 now. but over the next few hours, the numbers are going back down. so let me show you where we will take this. from the low and mid 50s now, back down to 33 in santa rosa. maybe we keep you right above the freeze mark. san jose, you should only do 42. sounds better. most of us will do low to mid 40s . if you have any access, any influence to the bay itself and whatever little humidity is there, that will help keep temperatures a little warmer for you. if we use the north bay valley numbers, it went down to 30. i don't think we are going that low again. but tomorrow at 33, 34 monday so if you could call that a warming trend. but it is still
6:17 pm
going to be 37 degrees nor the morning low wednesday. it will never improve a whole lot. but at least we will pull you away from the freeze and the frost concerns by the middle part of the week. meantime, daytime highs are not an issue at all. pretty much right on the market for average this time of the year. this is what most of the last two weeks have been like since we turned that exciting storm cycle off that we were in. we got rain earlier in the month. remember that? about the last week-and-a-half, it has been this. sunny, mild, wonderful in the afternoons. clear, and cold in the mornings. and we will do that all the way through thanksgiving. we don't see anything in the pacific that will change that pattern. storms are still going way too far north to get here. we will look at the whole four day holiday in a second. if we go past that, there is a hint of the possibility that monday, not this monday, the monday after that, after the holiday, we might be able to start thinking about rain. but shouldn't even go there. it is
6:18 pm
too far out there. but considering the level of interest and when are we going to get rain, but not here. look at thanksgiving. we actually warm up. san jose, you will be 71 for the daytime high. on thursday. santa rosa, and the north bay valleys will be in the mid 70s . that will be about six or seven degrees above average. all right charlie, over to you. coming up next in sports, why the golden state warrior's home court advantage is more than just an advantage right now. it's everything. plus, the cal bears crawl their way back into the big game. who won the 125th installment between the

time. >> reporter: 1989, loma prietta shakes the nation. >> san francisco doesn't want to be walled in or walled off. >> when the freeway no longer was going to be restored, rose went crazy and she really pushed and pushed and pushed. >> reporter: chinatown activist and legendary political power house rose pack wanted something in return for the business lost with the freeway so was there any one particular conversation that sold the idea of a subway? >> no. i had a conversation with rose every day. so, is that all right? had to make sure that this project was going to get finished at least in my lifetime. >> so this will be a dramatic improvement for the residents and businesses that live along the corridor. >> reporter: it would take
6:32 pm
years, but by 2007, the project had enough momentum and funding that it was going to be hard to stop it. >> it is the cheapest billion dollars you will ever spend on transit. >> reporter: that was despite big questions about costs and return on investment. >> all that money, how many people is it going to serve? is it effectively going to serve them and is it the correct priority? >> reporter: work started in 2010, the tunneling started in late 2013. and, the setbacks were not far behind. >> that it could add another month to the overall schedule. >> there were disputes with contractors over the railway steel. delays in excavating the china town station. >> covid-19 resulteded in a significant decrease in the efficiency of work on the central subway. >> reporter: as for the subway's original champion, she would not get the chance to see her project completed. >> rose was probably the most

6:34 pm
ways was a political project. instead of a transit planning project. >> it will bring more business into chinatown and help the business out a lot here. >> reporter: so businesses here are thrilled at the opportunity for more visitors. directly from mosconi center but all the questions about the cost and what we get for it will not go away. at least not any time soon. that story will continue and it will hang over the next big project no matter what that is. here in san francisco, wilson walker, kpix5. here is a live look outside sfo and oakland airport. the holiday travel outlook is approaching pre-pandemic levels. keep that in mind if you are leaveing the bay area for thanksgiving. sfo expects 5 million travelers to pass through the gates between tomorrow and new year's day. that is just 15% below where we were in 2019. across the bay,

anyway, darren, did you ever, yeah, you liveed in yosemite. you are in southern california. so, i'm not used to snow. but, you had a little experience. >> besides minus nine forecast for the morning lows, there was three feet of snow. what is so fascinating about what's happening in up state new york, if you don't have to live in it and shovel it, it's kind of fascinating and it has to do with the shape of lake erie. why is new york getting buried in feet of snow and they are only halfway done? we will put down another four feet of snow tonight. and it is this convergent of geography and meteorology. lake erie has the perfect shape to pummel that part of new york. watch the wind streams. this is very localized. it is not like you have five feet of snow all over the place. you have it in a
6:51 pm
very narrow band. that band depends on which way the wind is blowing over lake erie. it is oriented perfect west east. when the wind goes from the west to the east, the water is 50 degrees and the air is 30. you have all the warm moist air pulled up into this storm and it is the perfect snow machine and the wind decides who will get buried next. last night it was buffalo. the winds will start pointing toward syracuse tonight and you will see a whole new finger of snow start to develop right over oswego. syracuse sits right here. and the community is just to the north, they will get another four feet of snow. the perfect orientation of lake erie. back here at home, our issue is the cold mornings. we are doing it
6:52 pm
again tomorrow. mid 50s for most of us. but, if you skip ahead to tonighthe air is going 30s mparedthe 60s or the 70s . back here, at home, our story is the dry air allowing the temperatures at night to really plummet. dry air is less insulating so the numbers get a lot lower. that is why santa rosa gets morning lows in the low 30s and everybody elsewhere our humidity is in the 60s we only go down to the low to mid 40s . on the flip side of that, because the air is so dry, you warm up more in the afternoon. 70 in santa rosa while everybody else in the mid 60s . it will get a little better the next few days. so, we will pull you away from freezing for morning lows. and look, there is that trade-off. 68 in santa rosa. not a lot will change. we will keep doing this. we
6:53 pm
actually warm up a little more. by the time we get to thanksgiving on thursday, it's the warmest day in the whole seven day forecast. it will be 71 in san jose. but, it will be in the mid 70s in santa rosa. for daytime high on thanksgiving. what about rain? maybe aftethe four-day weekend. so, travel is a go from thursday through sunday at this point. keep your fingers crossed. maybe on monday, perfect timing. and we might get a little light rain. back to you. >> thanks darren. up next, it is america's fastest growing sport. what is behind the pickle ball craze here in the bay area?
