It’s time to ‘fall back’: Daylight saving time ends Sunday

November 5th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

As daylight saving time comes to an end, it's time to get ready for longer nights. This year, daylight saving time ends Sunday, Nov. 6. At 2 a.m., we will "fall back" one hour granting most people an extra hour of sleep. 

Daylight saving time (DST) is the practice of moving clocks forward one hour in the spring and back one hour during the fall. Moving them forward in the spring allows for more daylight during the summer evenings. In the fall, moving them backward grants us more daylight during the winter mornings.
