Turn clocks back one hour as Daylight Saving Time ends this Sunday, November 4

Daylight Saving Time ends at 2 a.m. this Sunday, Nov. 4, so remember to “fall back” and turn your clock back one hour before you go to bed Saturday night.

This year, Daylight Saving Time (DST) will end at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 4, as we return to Standard Time.

Daylight Saving Time has been observed over the years, starting as early as the 19th century, but it was not uniformly practiced.

In 1966, Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, which standardized the start and end dates for DST but allowed individual states to remain on standard time if their legislatures allowed it.

Since that Act, several changes were made over the years, with the current dates of time changes established in 2005, when the U.S. Congress passed a law extending DST by one month effective in 2007.

DST now begins the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.

During the time DST is in effect, the amount of daylight is decreased in the morning hours, and daylight is available later in the evening.
