Reminder, Turn Your Clocks Back on Sunday


On November 1 at 2 AM local time, clocks should be set back one hour (to 1 AM local time) to switch from DST to Standard Time. (This does not apply to parts of the United States not observing DST.)

Before 2007, older rules had DST beginning later in the spring, and ending earlier in autumn. The Energy Policy Act of 2005 implemented new rules effective in 2007 to save energy by beginning DST on the second Sunday of March and returning to Standard Time on the first Sunday in November, increasing the period of Daylight Saving Time by four weeks most years.
