WARREN, NJ - You're early. Or maybe not. Daylight saving time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday and most of the United States will have gone back an an hour and the correct time will be 1 a.m.
Daylight Savings Time officially ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday morning. Fortunately for most people, this adjustment will take place automatically on smartphones, computers and tablets that have become the real timekeepers instead of watches and clocks. Those with non-automated devices on your wrists or shelves will have to manually change the time.
Daylight saving time starts on the second Sunday in March and ends on the first Sunday in November.
While most people look forward to the extra hour of sleep this weekend, the end of Daylight Saving time brings an earlier dusk. From now until the Winter Solstice on December 21, 2017, the amount of daylight hours will decrease slightly each day.
This is TAP's friendly reminder to make sure you set your clocks back one hour- at least before Monday morning. Also, be sure to change the batteries in your smoke and carbon monoxide detectors, and if they are more than 10 years old, replace them.
