When does time change?

Ready to spring forward? The sun sets later starting this month as Daylight Saving Time resumes.

More sleep or more daylight in the evenings?

Daylight saving time returns Sunday, meaning we lose an hour of sleep, but gain more sunlight at the end of the day. Time changes at 2 a.m. on March 13.

It's time to spring forward.

Your smart phones and computers likely updated themselves, but those kitchen appliances and car clocks most likely will need to be turned ahead an hour on March 13.

Fire officials also urge you to check the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors around the house.

Daylight saving time ended on Nov. 1, with clocks falling back an hour at 2 a.m. This year, the time changes again at 2 a.m. on Nov. 6.

Daylight saving time has been practiced in the U.S. since 1918 when Congress passed Standard Time Act in order to conserve fuel during World War I. It lasted less than a year, but many states continued to follow daylight saving time changes since.
