A bittersweet farewell to Frank M. Reid at Bethel AME
Maryland Weather

Daylight savings end will soon mean darkness for rush hours

The shift back to Eastern Standard Time will soon mean both rush-hour commutes spent in the dark for many of us.

With the one-hour shift backward, sunset will arrive before 5 p.m. by Thursday and sunrise will push past 7 a.m. by Nov. 24.

The length of daylight meanwhile dips below the 10-hour mark somewhere in between the two, on Nov. 16.

But don't fret; it will be early in the near year, around Jan. 7, when it will start staying light past 5 p.m. again.

Here comes winter.
