Turn clocks back as DST ends Sunday

Daylight Saving Time ends on Sunday, Nov. 1.

That means it's time for area residents to "fall back" - set the time on their clocks back one hour.

The official end to Daylight Saving Time is at 2 a.m. on Nov. 1. Instead of moving from 1:59 a.m. to 2 a.m., the time will move from 1:59 a.m. back to 1 a.m.

Daylight Saving Time in the United States is observed from the second Sunday in March to the first Sunday in September. Changing the time in March moves an hour of daylight from the morning to the evening during the summer months.
