It’s Time to Spring Ahead with Daylight-Saving Time

For most of U.S., clocks are set forward one hour at 2 a.m. Sunday

Ready or not, you’ll likely lose an hour of sleep this weekend as much of the country makes the switch to daylight-saving time from standard time.

The time officially springs forward at 2 a.m. Sunday so turn your clocks and watches ahead one hour before going to bed Saturday night.

Not everyone makes the switch. Hawaii and much of Arizona remain on standard time year-round, as do American Samoa, Guam, the Northern Marianas and the Virgin Islands.

For the rest of the country, standard time returns Nov. 6.

If you haven’t already done so, now’s a good time to replace smoke-detector batteries and refresh home emergency kits. Public-safety officials say the twice-a-year time switch makes those tasks easy to schedule and remember.

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!
