Report by Paula Antolini, March 11, 2023, 11:15pm EDT

Daylight Saving Time (DST) begins this Sunday, March 11, 2023.

Daylight saving time in the United States begins on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November. This year, it will start on March 12, 2023, and it will end on November 5th. In 2024, DST will start on March 10 and will end on November 3. In 2025 the dates will be March 9 and November 2, and for 2026, March 8 and November 1.

The change of summer begins at 2:00 am, time in which the clocks must move forward one hour, to 3:00 am. In autumn, clocks go back one hour, from 2:00am to 1:00am. Most electronic devices do this change automatically.

Arizona, Hawaii, American Samoa, Guam, the Mariana Islands, Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands are the states and territories that do not observe daylight saving time.

Sunrise and sunset will be about 1 hour later on Mar 12, 2023 than the day before. There will be more light in the evening.

Also called Spring Forward, summer time, and Daylight Saving Time.
