Reminder: Don't Forget to Spring Forward One Hour

Daylight Saving Time ends Sunday morning at 2 a.m.

It's that time again to set your clocks forward one hour or "spring forward" before you head to bed Saturday night.

Daylight saving time will be ending at 2 a.m. Sunday, March. 11. The change means sunrise will begin at 7:37 a.m. Sunday, and sunset will begin at 7:23 p.m.

Next week, commuters can anticipate some changes, as well. Most people will travel the morning commute in the dark come next week and the late afternoon sun glare could be troublesome during the evening commute. So take precautions.

According to the National Atlas, daylight saving time started in the United States during World War I as an effort to conserve energy. The time change was to better align sunrise and sunset with people’s normal waking hours. It was instituted again during World War II. Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, which standardized this, in 1966.
