When does Daylight Saving begin in 2024?

Can you smell Spring in the air?  

The start of longer daylight hours is on the way! Daylight Saving Time (DST) will begin on Sunday, March 10 at 2 a.m. local time, when we will set our clocks ahead one hour, giving Americans more hours in the sun. Some cities in the U.S. are already reporting sunset times after 6 p.m. even ahead of the time change, as the Earth and the Northern Hemisphere begins its tilt toward the sun. 

DST was originally used to save energy and make better use of daylight. DST is part of the twice-annual time change that affects millions, but not all Americans; Most of Arizona, as well as Hawaii, will remain unaffected. The Uniform Time Act of 1966 allows states to choose whether to remain on standard time or change their clocks twice a year and it has been in effect in the U.S. However, DST is not without controversy! Since 2015, more than 200 DST bills and resolutions have been introduced in almost every state across the US.

Don’t forget, SPRING FORWARD on Sunday, March 10 at 2 am. Perhaps set your clocks ahead before going to bed!
