night. take a look at live doppler 7. no fog, no rain. as you look at the hour by hour forecast by 11:00 p.m. tonight, temperatures in the 50s, 60s into tomorrow morning, they will be tumbling many of you will be in the 40s as you get going. tomorrow afternoon, 66 degrees in half moon bay, a nice mild one. 71, 81 santa rosa and 75 oakland. upper 70s livermore, san jose 80 degrees in concord. your accuweather seven-day forecast, mild pattern for the afternoon but autumn chill in the air at night and in the morning and halloween is looking fantastic for little kids trick-or-treating. don't forget to fall back one hour. you gain the extra hour of sleep sunday morning. so daylight saving time will be ending. i know we're looking forward to the sleep, ama, dan? >> always. all right. time to turn our attention to sports. larry beil is here with the latest. larry?
6:49 pm
>> ama, dan, i would prefer it stay light out longer but i'll give you your hour of sleep. >> i agree. >> will you? >> yeah, all right. it's the guys against the girls. that's the way it is. anyway, the 49ers prepping for the man who might turn out to be the mvp this year. almost impossible to defend russell wilson. yeah. he is dangerous. another big if your dry eye symptoms keep coming back, inflammation in your eye might be to blame. looks like a great day for achy, burning eyes over-the-counter eye drops typically work by lubricating your eyes and may provide temporary relief. ha! these drops probably won't touch me. xiidra works differently, targeting inflammation that can cause dry eye disease. what is that? xiidra, noooo! it can provide lasting relief. xiidra is the only fda approved treatment specifically for the signs and symptoms of dry eye disease. one drop in each eye, twice a day. don't use if you're allergic to xiidra.
6:50 pm
common side effects include eye irritation, discomfort or blurred vision when applied to the eye, and unusual taste sensation. don't touch container tip to your eye or any surface. after using xiidra, wait 15 minutes before reinserting contacts. got any room in your eye? talk to an eye doctor about twice-daily xiidra. i prefer you didn't! xiidra. not today, dry eye. the unfair money bail system. he, accused of rape. while he, accused of stealing $5. the stanford rapist could afford bail; got out the same day. the senior citizen could not; forced to wait in jail nearly a year. voting yes on prop 25 ends this failed system, replacing it with one based on public safety. because the size of your wallet shouldn't determine whether or not you're in jail. vote yes on prop 25 to end money bail.
6:51 pm
vote yes on prop 25 the pain is always around the corner.o

good evening. the 49ers getting set for an epic showdown with the seahawks on sunday. niners have won two this a row. the hawks lost the first game of the season sunday to arizona. this is going to be the first meeting since that incredible final game of last season. seals the nfc west title. tackle inside the one yard line. no fans allowed so the niners won't have to deal with the crowd noise but have to contain russell wilson. >> our guys are familiar with that. most people in the league know that. no matter what happens, they have a chance and i think that's why you see so many weird endings because he can always pull something out of the bag and off crazy. so we've seen that a number of years and i know people have been seeing that from him and his team and saw another one last night. our players are ready for it. it will come down to the wire and regardless how the first half goes, that's what you got to expect.
6:53 pm
>> for sure. last and hoping they are not least, the pac 12 begins play on november the 7th. the last of the major conferences in the country to get started and sanford will start with a bang. a nationally televised game. in fact, it will be here on abc 7. a challenging few weeks for the cardinal. they couldn't practice in santa clara and had to work out in san mateo county for awhile practice income small groups and now they are finally up to speed. >> having the off season we all had and thinking any one guy is going to play every single snap of every single game is probably unrealistic. to be able to have some depth, have some rotation, i think can help us in the long haul. there is such a ramp up at the beginning of training camp and not practice here but not just that, to have to shorten practices. our practices are shorter than usual because we didn't have the guys on the field at the same time per county restrictions.
6:54 pm
>> cal football hopes november 7th. the bears haven't started a season this late since 1892 when they beat san francisco boys high school 12-0. that sounded like a mismatch. we're expecting the ms. khuskie be a toucher matchup. not all is perfect. the berkeley team shut down practice because one of the players tested positive for covid-19. they have been holding limited practices, not contact. justin wilcox discussing the challenges for all teams right now. >> i talked to coach fox daily and i think it doesn't necessarily impact us but it is one more example of how fragile this thing is and how west got

to be vigilant on and off the field about the protocols. >> the baseball season may come to an end tonight. dodgers, though, trailing tampa bay in game six 1-0 there in the fifth. complete highlights tonight at 11:00. dan and ama. >> excellent. thanks very much. be sure to join us tonight for abc 7 news at 11:00. you see the sign here, it says love trumps hate. it's directly over an area painted over but one spray painted with a swastika and the word trump. details tonight at 11:00. we have traumatic video of a rescue off the sonoma county coast this morning. watch as crews pull a man out of the water after he got tangled in fishing line. finally tonight, a few thoughts about what matters. all this week, we're focussing on how the holidays will be affected by the coronavirus. the reporting is centered on key content focal points, our pillars for building a better

bay area. yesterday was health, tonight the economy. halloween this weekend then on to thanksgiving and christmas. all of them have becoen been commercialized, particularly christmas but this year we shouldn't mind as much. merchants big and small are hanging on by a thread. many that survived so far might not be able to hang in much longer if holiday sales don't give them a significant boost. understandably, a lot of people are reluctantly to go out to eat and shop and the pandemic devastated families' economically. for many, the holiday season will be lean out of necessity. like everything else in this very strange year, the holidays will be very different for a variety of reasons. spending money where we can will help the economy over the holidays, but of course, what really matters is that we spend time safely with loved ones. i always love to hear from you. let me know what you think. follow me on twitter and facebook @dan ashley, abc 7.
