Time jumping ahead one hour in most of US on Sunday

WASHINGTON, United States — Time’s really flying this weekend across most of the United States.

That’s because the shift from standard time to daylight saving time officially takes place at 2 a.m. local time Sunday. With the spring forward, you lose out an hour’s sleep Saturday night. Daylight lasts longer into the evening but takes an hour longer to emerge in the morning.

At 2 a.m., Sunday, March 11, 2018, most Americans will need to move their clocks one hour forward to 3 a.m.

No time change is observed in Hawaii, most of Arizona, Puerto Rico, the Virgin Islands, American Samoa, Guam and the Northern Marianas. Florida could eventually join that list if GOP Gov. Rick Scott signs the “Sunshine Protection Act” passed this week, and Congress goes along.
