Most of US to put clocks back

October 31, 2014

WASHINGTON (AP) — Many people in the United States are getting an extra hour of sleep this weekend, thanks to the annual shift back to standard time.

Officially, the change comes at 2 a.m. (0600GMT) Sunday, but most Americans usually set their clocks back before heading to bed Saturday night.

Residents of Hawaii, most of Arizona and some U.S. territories don’t have to change; Daylight Saving Time is not observed there.

The change means New York and states in the eastern time zone will be five hours behind Greenwich Mean Time. Many Europeans put their clocks back last weekend.

Daylight Saving Time in the U.S. returns at 2 a.m. local time the second Sunday in March — March 8, 2015.
