Turn Back Time

Daylight Saving Time officially comes to an end this weekend; remember to turn your clocks back an hour before going to bed on Saturday night, Nov. 4. That will mean a return to standard time early morning Sunday, Nov. 5, with it getting darker earlier in the evening and lighter earlier in the morning.

This year, Daylight Saving Time went into effect on March 12; the idea behind it is to have more hours of daylight in the evening during the warmer months, when people are more likely to stay outside. With colder weather during the winter, the earlier fall of darkness typically means people will stay inside more.

Daylight Saving Time was in effect for 240 days in 2023, or roughly two-thirds of the year.

In the fall, we gain an hour of sleep while, in the spring, we lose that hour with the return to DST when we ‘spring ahead’ and set the clocks ahead one hour.
