Fall Back: Daylight Saving Time Ends Sunday Morning at 2 a.m.
Remember to move your clocks back an hour (“fall back”) before you go to bed Saturday night, as Daylight Saving Time will be ending at 2 a.m. Sunday, Nov. 6.
The change means sunrise will be at 6:40 a.m. Sunday, and sunset will be at 5:04 p.m. Next week, this is expected to make the evening westbound commute into the sun a bit easier on drivers.
Daylight Saving Time started in the United States during World War I as an effort to conserve energy. The time change better aligns sunrise and sunset with people’s normal waking hours. It was instituted again during World War II. Congress passed the Uniform Time Act, which standardized this, in 1966.
