Fall back 2016: When does the time change?

Published 1:26 pm Saturday, November 5, 2016

WASHINGTON (AP) — Time won’t fly this weekend. In fact, it’ll actually hitch a ride back.

Daylight saving time is ending and it’s back to standard time for most people in the United States. The annual fall ritual means turning back your clocks by one hour, and relishing 60 minutes of extra sleep this weekend.

But wait. You mean, it’s called Daylight Saving Time, not Daylight Savings Time with an S on the end of saving?

That’s right: It’s just officially called Daylight Saving Time. No S on savings. People just habitually say that.

Anyway, the change comes at 2 a.m. local time Sunday, and the shift moves one hour of daylight saving time to the morning from the evening.

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don’t need to fiddle with their clocks because those places don’t observe daylight saving time.

Daylight saving time returns at 2 a.m. local time on Sunday, March 12.
