Don’t forget, it’s almost time to spring ahead one hour

Daylight Saving Time kicks in this weekend. Here’s exactly when, and some background on bi-annual clock changing.

As a Lookout reader, we know you’re digitally minded, so your phones, computers and other electronic devices likely will update their times automatically.

But, just in case: Digital Saving Time kicks in this weekend, specifically at 2 a.m. on Sunday, March 14. Before going to bed, remember to set your clocks one hour ahead. While you might get a little less sleep, the shift will provide more evening daylight during the spring, summer and early fall.

Daylight Saving Time will expire this year at 2 a.m. on Sunday, Nov. 7, at which point clocks will go back one hour.

The bi-annual clock switching has proven controversial in several states, including California, over the years. Voters here in 2018 approved a ballot measure to stop doing it, but the state Legislature has yet to enact that change, according to the National Council of State Legislatures.
