It’s Time to Turn the Clocks Back 1 Hour as Daylight Saving Time Ends

It’s time for clocks to “fall back” as daylight saving time ends at 2 a.m. Sunday.

That means turning clocks back one hour the night before or remembering to do it in the morning.

It’s an extra hour of sleep Sunday, but the shift in daylight to the morning hours means many people will get off work to a dark sky.

Sunrise will change to 6:23 a.m. from 7:23 a.m., perhaps making it easier for early risers to get out of bed.

Sunset in Santa Barbara was 6:02 p.m. Saturday so, starting Sunday, that will drop back to 5 p.m., getting earlier and earlier until the winter solstice, on Dec. 21 this year.

Fire agencies advocate changing smoke detector batteries whenever you change your clocks, to make sure they stay in working order.

Don’t worry about changing clocks again until March 11, when daylight saving time starts back up and clocks “spring forward” one hour.

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!
