It’s time to fall back on Sunday

Daylight saving time ends on Sunday. Clocks will fall back one hour this Sunday, November 5, from 2 a.m. to 1 a.m.

Daylight saving time begins on the first Sunday in March when clocks move forward an hour and stay that way until the first Sunday in November. The one-hour fallback this Sunday will bring most of the country back to standard time.

Most smartphone devices automatically update their clocks, but things such as microwaves, ovens, cars, and more – might need to be manually adjusted.
