Set Your Clocks Ahead

At 2 a.m. Sunday, it'll really be 3 a.m. Sunday.

Sunday is the start of Daylight Saving Time (DST), which means you'll need to set your clocks forward one hour overnight Saturday.

The change in time pushes sunset later into the afternoon and evening in order to give most people more daylight during the working hours of spring, summer and fall.  Except for those in Arizona and Hawaii, as DST is not observed in those states.

Early risers, however, will be in the dark longer with sunrise pushed until later in the morning.

Daylight Saving Time is observed this year until 2 a.m. Nov. 4, when clocks will be pushed back one hour to allow for more daylight in the winter.

So, until then, enjoy a little extra boost of Vitamin D.
