Be prepared to ‘spring forward’ this weekend

The annual “spring forward” into daylight saving time will begin this weekend, meaning you will lose one hour of sleep Saturday night.

The time change will take place at 2 a.m. Sunday morning, meaning more daylight in the evenings until the fall. You will need to set manual clocks ahead one hour before going to sleep Saturday night. Most cell phones, tablets, and computers will reset automatically.

Daylight saving time lasts for a total of 34 weeks, ending at 2 a.m. on Nov. 5.

There is currently stalled legislation that would make daylight saving time permanent on a national level, the time change will be happening this year regardless of any decision on the proposed legislation.
