Spring Forward! Daylight Saving Time Starts Sunday

Remember to turn your clocks ahead an hour before going to bed Saturday night

It’s time to spring forward.

Daylight saving time is back on Sunday, beginning at 2 a.m. local time, stealing an hour of sleep but bringing more daylight while ushering in spring. It will end Sunday, Nov. 4.

Remember to set your clocks forward before going to bed Saturday night.

The City of Santa Barbara encouraged residents this use to use the spring forward ritual to check the batteries on fire alarms and carbon monoxide detectors.

Also on the horizon this weekend may be more solar flares like those seen earlier this week. The flares are believed to have caused temporary power outages and blocked cell signals in some places, and more solar activity is expected to continue over the weekend, according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
