Remember to Set Clocks Back Sunday as Daylight Saving Time Ends

Daylight saving time this year ends at 2 a.m. Sunday, November 4. Remember to set your clocks back one hour and check your smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

According to the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) website, daylight saving time (DST) is the part of the year when we advance our clocks by one hour, shifting the time of day in relation to where the Sun is above Earth.  That means daylight begins an hour later in the morning and lasts an hour longer in the evening.

The changover back to standard time (ST) occurs on the first Sunday in November at 2 a.m. (local time).  Some people remember which way to move their clocks using the phase, “spring forward, fall back.”

Find more information about local time on the NIST website.

Montgomery County Fire and Rescue Service (MCFRS) urge residents to check their smoke alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.
